Toya: Hello Damon, I have a guy who has sat for the cable guy for me, fixed my car, went shopping with me, etc. Do men do things “just because” to be nice or is he waiting to smash me?
Damon: I don’t have any kids yet, but I (kinda) hope to one day. If this happens, there’s a 50% chance that this kid will be a girl. Before I send her out into the world, I’m going to say “Come here, little 5 year old Damona” and leave her with this bit of advice:
