Either This Is A Prank Or There Is A Tragic, Real-Life Version Skyler White


A person identified only as "Winnipeg," has written a letter to the Winnipeg Free Press' advice column, which is either an excellent prank or proof that there is some poor soul living out the reality of Skyler White's tragic life.

In the column, titled "Troubles pile up for family after terminal diagnosis," Winnipeg writes:

Dear Miss Lonelyhearts: I've been happily married to my husband for 15 years; however, he was recently diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. Ever since his diagnosis, he's become a completely different person. He sometimes comes home in the middle of the night with no explanation of where he was. I found out he started smoking marijuana. I also have a pretty good suspicion he has a second cellphone, though he denies it. I desperately need help. I'm currently pregnant, to go along with a moody son, a husband with lung cancer and an overdrawn chequing account. -- Stressed and Confused, Winnipeg.

Miss Lonelyhearts responds with multiple paragraphs of advice, including various information for help lines and food banks. To be honest, fictional Skyler probably couldn't have used much of it, given that her main problem wasn't so much hunger as being married to a psychopathic meth cook and murderer, but hey, now we at least have an alternative title for "Breaking Bad."
