Rick Nelson and Claude Peck dispense unasked-for advice about clothing, etiquette, culture, relationships, grooming and more.


CP: Got time for a funny story?


RN: Always.


CP: It seems my younger sister’s Minneapolis friend DeEtte recently got into a heated argument with a friend. The friend insisted that you and I were a couple.


RN: Seriously? And, DeEtte? Now that’s a name.


CP: DeEtte said no. Each was certain she was correct. Only after a week’s time are they back on speaking terms.


RN: Holy Gay Pride, Batman, we’re so not worth seven whole days of the cold shoulder. Well, you aren’t, anyway. Kidding.


CP: The misunderstanding is understandable. We have the low-level bickering of a long-established couple down pat, for one example.


RN: We also share a kind of secret vocabulary. But don’t all platonic friends do that?
