I had 2 tests in the last two weeks. Junior got COVID-19, he was back to normal in 2 days.
I am getting the damn Pfizer vaccine twice.

I didn't see my mum in two years, nor will I now..

Yeah, it must be costly as well. I haven't seen the girl for nearly a year, I was there in London for a little more than two weeks in February, but my economy can't handle another trip before this is all over

The goal is to write all three and four letter combinations and try to make sense of it.

Yet, she is still “the girl”?

Haha, yeah I guess I need to add some details. If our meeting in february is excluded it has been nearly a year.
Yes, despite being in a long distance relationship, I do not up and abandon this one, because she is very smart
And very is smart is hard to come by

Are you saying men are smarter than women? You are Danish and therefore bisexual, so get a boyfriend if you want smart and your theory is correct.

Nah, I'm saying women are normal distributed differently to men, with less spread and higher mean. Which makes it a little more difficult to find a top girl, but easier to find a mean girl. As for boyfriends, there's sort of a variety of reasons not to.

Of course, the women of Wilmott are drawn from the right tail. And are not mean girls.

I bet matchmaking would be fun, but I think it would take a long time though

Just a word to the young Dane.

“If it be now, ’tis not to come: if it be not to come, it will be now: if it be not now, yet it will come: the readiness is all.”

Sounds like you have a good thing - maybe give it time?

As far as hedging uncertainty goes, consider cross-asset diversification. 

Do not hedge a beloved woman with other women. Hedge with guitars, motorcycles, mountain climbing, books, oceans, and skies...

To which point, my latest "conquest":

Gibson Les Paul in Ebony - I finally decided now is the time, 'tis not to come.

How does it sound?
Little lesson from my favorite teacher.

Good luck and remember: A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.

I was awaiting your appearance, and you did not disappoint! On a technical note, though, I think you are really not describing hedging as much as that other staple of risk management — diversification. Sorry, upon second reading you did actually point it out as such.
