Ruthie Rooters Get Personal

A friend recently asked me about the emails I receive for this column. I explained that I try to answer the questions in the order I receive them, but at times I hold onto emails, deciding to answer them at a later date. Sometimes I’ll even group similar letters together just for the hell of it. That’s what we’ve got here, my friends—a bunch of naughty letters asking about my red carpet, my rack and more.


Writing for Milwaukee publications for more than 20 years, I’ve noticed one thing: People can ask some pretty personal things. That said, take a gander at some of the cheekier questions I receive. Enjoy!


Dear Ruthie,

Let’s cut to the chase. Does the carpet match the curtains?

—Want to Know

Dear Nosey,

Yes…but only when it’s steam cleaned.


Dear Ruthie,

I really want to know what cup size you are? Love those cans.

—Admired from Afar

Dear Weirdo,

42 long…on a good night. At my age, my boobies hang so low, I wear curb feelers on my nipples.
P.S. “Cans?”


Dear Ruthie,

Have you ever considered taking a dip in the lady pond?

—Wondering in Stallis


Dear Stallis,

I haven’t gone Downtown with a gal pal, but I certainly have no qualms with those who do. I’m pretty sure that if I put my toe in the lady pond, I’d need water wings, however, as I’d likely be swept away.


Dear Ruthie,
What’s with the hair and glasses? I don’t get it.


Dear Questioning,
Fuck you. I’m old.
