When you start talking about moving.
Boyfriends have trips out of town planned.
People suddenly excuse themselves from conversations with you about your pending move lest you solicit their help.
Fathers have to “check their calendars” to see if they can help you.
Look people, I don’t have much to offer for your help, but I can buy beer (for those of a legal age) and I write nice little thank you notes with my cute stationary. Oh, and Gertie gives great kisses.
So if you are free on Saturday, January 24 and want to lend a hand or two, let me know.
