This might be a first for the "Mr. Wrong" column, you know, that a question got answered?

Hey, Happy New Year (still), OK?

I mean, overall it's still kinda early days to be saying this Year Of Our Lord is a really good or a really crappy year (yet), but we have The Holidays (whatever those are) behind us, except for Super Bowl and Groundhog Day coming up, which are pretty low-impact The Holidays, which is why they are my faves, of course, because anybody who wants to can dive right in and enjoy, and nobody cares if you don't, but you should, especially this year, because they are both on the same day, arrroooo! But still, it is still Happy New Year To You until it isn't, OK?

Way back in the year Two Thousand and Thirteen, American, I asked the Gentle Readers of the Mr. Wrong column to send in their

Top Ten

list for 2013, and I would pick one and run it someplace, like, oh, I dunno, maybe in my column to chew up some column-inches, har!

So here is the winning Top Ten from reader and writer

Mr. Allen M.

of Baltimore, who instructs us "Items 6 and 2 refer to things that were voted on in 2012 but came to pass in 2013. All Top Tens are

bolded

, of course."

That's a pretty good Top Ten, eh? It was kinda personal, but also had stuff that applied to people all over the place, so I'll find a prize someplace here in the office and ship it out to Mr. M., but first I wanna run one more response to the Top Ten thing:

See, now that's already on my Top Ten list for this year, the 2014, to know there is a Gentle Reader out there who has experienced Transformative Change through the "Mr. Wrong" column, or I guess maybe could also be assuming Transformative Change of said column, hm?

OK, I'm on a roll here with the Positivity, lemme share another email at you, all the way from Washington (Our Nation's Capital), in the District of Columbia:

That was from

Debra S.

, and you're goddamned right I tell it like it is, Debra! What else am I gonna do? I might change, though, I don't think I can control that, but thank you for that lovely note. OK, wait, one more, and this is kinda interactive. Last week's installment of the "Mr. Wrong" column was all about how this guy at

The New York Times

drew attention to himself by pointing out to errbody he was no longer putting his Middle Initial on his columns, so I snatched it up and used it in my column:

You know Susan, I don't have an answer for you, but

Bobby R.

, of the Internet, has some answers for you!

Yeah! Thanks Bobby R. for answering Susan's question, this might be a first for the "Mr. Wrong" column, you know, that a question got answered? What a great start to the year, man, I have a good feeling about everything, so let's see how long that lasts, eh? Thanks to all the Gentle Readers who flipped it and became awesome writers and helped me fill the column this week!
