I have been fortunate in that my friends are generally highly clueful people who have been very supportive. The only annoying advice had generally been coming from the prospective grandmothers and other close family members.
And then there is the more unusual advice. Today, one of the few female coworkers who knows what's up suggested that I go here for a little spiritual help with the situation. Its got to be better than Robutussin, and hey, its a vacation too!
