One of the things that makes poly hard, as we often say, is that there’s very little guidance.

author

J and I take taekwondo together. Our classmates have seen me with him, B, and our daughter. One Saturday after class, I’m standing in the parking lot with J, relaying a request from B.

“I have a question; tell me if I’m out of line,” he says.

“Shoot.” I’m trying to figure out what he’s trying to say.
