Many Are Called, Few Are Chosen

Dear Short Answers: My son, who is 18 years old, very athletic and very handsome, has decided that he wants to move to NYC to become a model.  I have tried to reason with him and explain that college is more important but he believes that if he waits for four years, he may be [...]

The “D” Word

Dear Short Answers: My girlfriend decided to get a nose ring and it completely grosses me out.  Every time I look at it, I think she’s got a bugger sticking out of her nose.  And I almost say “you’ve got a bugger sticking out of your nose” before I remember what it is.  Would it [...]

Apples and Oranges

Dear Short Answers: What do you think of all this “identify confusion” that seems to be going around?  Bruce Jenner thinks he’s a girl and some white woman from Spokane thinks she’s Black.  Why can’t people just be happy with the way they were born?

The Formerly Sartorial

Dear Short Answers: My husband decided that since he retired last year, he doesn’t need to shave, shower or wear clean clothes every day.  He’s not lazy.  He plays golf, works in the yard, visits the grandkids, etc. etc.  He just doesn’t like what he calls “maintenance functions.”  Should I make a big deal about [...]

Much Maligned

Dear Short Answers: Do you think there should be a weight limit on airplanes? Or at least a rule that says if you’re over a certain weight, you need to buy TWO seats. I’d fed up with being scrunched in a middle seat between grotesquely overweight Americans. What can I do? Squeezed Dear Squeezed: Although [...]

We Probably Are NUTS!

Dear Short Answers: Not a question but a comment to a response (to Wannabe Me) regarding should he or should he not get a tattoo because his wife hates them. Well, I HATE them and if my husband walked into the house and said “sorry but I got a tattoo anyhow” — that would be [...]
