We agreed to buy a bigger house and then have a baby, but at this rate, I already have one — MY HUSBAND! Is there any hope? — Mama Already
Dear Mama Already: No, I don’t think so. You married a man who is lazy, or passive aggressive and angry at your refusal to have a baby, or has been so spoiled by his mother that he thinks this is a normal way to live. Counseling might help you get through to him, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
Dear Abby: I am 10 years old and I have a major boy problem. My ex (Bob) broke up with me, and I felt funny around him and a little mad. So I kind of moved on. I went to my crush who had previously asked me out, and I said yes. Now I’m stuck and I don’t know what to do. I asked my mom and didn’t like the answer, so now I’m asking you.
Confused Girl In Arkansas
Dear Confused Girl: I don’t know what your mother told you, but here’s my advice: At 10, you’re too young to be in an exclusive relationship with anyone. Because you regret saying yes to your crush, tell him your mother disapproves and you cannot go against her wishes.
Dear Abby: Can you please tell me the proper way to eat a taco salad? Do you crunch up the taco bowl, eat everything out of it and then eat the taco bowl? I asked my husband, and he said to ask you.
Traci In Amsterdam, N.Y.
Dear Traci: There are no rules of etiquette governing how to eat a taco salad. However, when I order one, I usually eat the contents of the bowl, then chip off pieces of the tortilla if I still have enough room to nibble. I have also seen diners order the salad and ask that it be served on a salad plate (“Hold the taco!”) in order to save a few calories.
