Dear 100 Hour Board,
I am a male that had mono as a child. Now it seems like all the girls I kiss get mono. Is there any way to practice "safe kissing?"

A: Dear Life in Mono,

Have you ever tried not opening your mouth, or even putting a balloon on your tongue? That should protect the next girl you kiss, although it may force you to do a bit of explaining. Maybe then you could explain how Jen, Lindsay, and that one chick who really wanted to get married came down with mono several weeks after you started dating them. Is it true that you got mono from your brother?
