Very true. All objects, regardless of weight (mass), fall at the same acceleration rate (9.8 m/s). But for the sake of simplicity, a heavier object would hurt a lot more falling from a greater height, than it would if it fell from only a couple feet up. Because the rate of descent does depend on the height at which it was dropped. So, what I meant was that it wouldn’t hurt that much if a coconut fell on you because it’s not particularlyheavy. Even if it did fall from a tall tree.

Haha. That has Daily Odd Compliment written all over it. So needless to say, I approve of your crush. And do otters really drown ducks for no reason? I’ve never heard that before. If so, this changes my entire opinion on them. Actually, that’s not true. I still think otters are cute and playful and fun. The last time I saw an otter, I wanted him to come closer to me, so I meowed at him. It didn’t work. True story.

Oh, man, I just have so many questions about this. First off, how does one die from a coconut? Better yet, how do approx. 150 people die from a coconut each year? That figure seems way too high for me. I assume most coconut-caused deaths happen from falling coconuts, but how often are people around falling coconuts? Apparently all the time. Which seems wrong to me. And if 150 people get hit in the head by a coconut and die, how many people get hit in the head with them and don’t die? Or does every person who encounters a falling coconut die? I mean, I know coconut trees are tall, but coconuts themselves are not particularly heavy. Hard, yes, but not heavy. So their falling velocity wouldn’t be that fast. I could maybe understand 150 coconut-related injuries each year, but deaths? No way. And, yes, I will marry you.

Dear Jezebele, I am great at keeping secrets. For instance, this one time my friend told me to keep a secret and I did. So, yeah, I won’t tell anyone about our friendship. Unless publishing this is telling people. In which case, whoops!

Yes, everything I do, I do it for you. And, no joke, after reading this, I had a mini Ace of Base jam session. And now my day is great. So thanks. Also, props on this comment. Well done.

Well, based on what you’ve told me so far, I’d say you’re more than qualified to be my verybestfriend. And I’m extremely excited to hear your book readings. Accents make me happy. “Ello guv’na.” Hahaha. Who says that?

Of course. I thought you’d never ask. Now even though we agreed that we wouldn’t exchange gifts this year (I don’t actually remember this agreement, but I never received a gift from you for my birthday, so I’m assuming an agreement of this sort was made), I decided to get you one anyways. Unfortunately, we ran into a bit of a hiccup.
Apparently, stealing a white tiger is illegal and so is covering it in wrapping paper and tying it to the front door of a Fed Ex store with a $20 bill and a note, reading “Please ship to one of my favorite followers. It’s her 21st birthday and this tiger is her present.” Anyways, I’m working on getting the tiger back, and when I do, he is all yours. Until then, though, here is a special birthday hug.
