Dear Mended Drum,
I have four chickens, all hens. But in recent mornings I've been hearing something that sounds suspiciously like a rooster crowing. What gives?

Alas, the anti-trans bathroom law in North Carolina has angered and confused everyone.  Let your chickens be whoever they are in their hearts.

Alright, fine.

But the crowing is dangerously like mansplaining.

"Well, actually, Melba, if you notice the way the sun has arisen, that means it is morning and therefore a reasonable time for you to wake up. "

Cocksplaining?

For the ultimate in cocksplaining, I recommend The Nun's Priest's Tale, in which a rooster will explain to a hen that 1. laxatives are poisonous, 2. women are the source of man's first confusion, and 3. chickens can have prophetic dreams.

Surprisingly, one of these claims is correct.

Speaking of which...sort of.  It is that old question, again.

Dear Mended Drum,

When will a lovely man fall head over heels in love with me and will wonder why on earth no one has taken me up on my many offers? Will this happen in my lifetime, or must I content myself with forever longing til the day I die?

Here is the terrible truth:  it is when you stop longing that your true love appears.  The fact that your true love may turn out to be chocolate does not make the previous claim any less true.
