Mad as Hell

Dear Ruthie,

My girlfriend just doesn’t turn me on anymore. She used to be hot, but after the birth of our baby six months ago, she gained weight and doesn’t seem to want to lose it. How can I tell her that I’d like her to wear makeup again, dress sexy again, do her hair hot again? How do I talk to a woman about such things?


Horny Bill

Dear Billy Boy,

Do you have mirrors in your house? If so, use ’em! Are you a male model? Do you have pecs for days and a six-pack? If not, then shut the hell up! If so, then may I ask how it felt when you pushed a tiny human out of your keester? What did that do to your body? Oh, you don’t know? Then shut the hell up!

Maybe your lady hasn’t gotten dolled up because she’s tired! She has a newborn in her life. You’re not sure how to talk to your girlfriend about such things? Don’t! Shut the hell up!

Dear Ruthie,

What’s the poop with all the political comments, memes and arguments taking place on social media? I can’t stand it anymore! I think Facebook should ban all such conversations. Don’t you think? Social media just ain’t no fun anymore. Agree or disagree? What can we do about this, dearie?

See You at the Family Reunion,
Aunt Sophie

Dear Imposter,

First off, I don’t have an Aunt Sophie, so stop trying to horn in on my column. Secondly, if you’re not happy with social media, log off, unplug and call it a day…psycho.
