What Is Early Word? The Philadelphia Inquirer's experimental online "morning show", which began in Sept. 2005, went on hiatus in the summer of 2006, after a gradual shift to putting more of its content directly on Philly.com.
About the Host Peter Mucha, husband and father of two, grew up in Cherry Hill and is a lifelong Philly sports fan. He's been writing and editing for The Inquirer for 18 years.
His motto (at least for today): "If I'm not brief, give me grief."

Boyfriend Fed Her Beef! Cowabunga, he spiked her turkey sloppy Joe! She's "bothered." She's debating dumping him. Talk with him, says Carolyn "Tell Me About It" Hax. If he's apologetic, let it go. If not, let him go.
Ah, but Hax ignores the setting. This wasn't some private jab. This happened at his parents' house, making it a public mockery and possible conspiracy. They might have been in on the gag. Potentially, that's worse.
If you can laugh it off -- you're still alive -- more power to you. Seems he's hinting you take yourself too seriously. But I wonder how he'd react if you bake him bread or make him a meatloaf ... with ground-up bugs. Some books specialize in such recipes. Just wondering. Not suggesting. That just wouldn't be cricket.
