He wonders who wife's booty might be calling


DEAR ABBY: I have been married to my wife for 33 years. I recently found a pair of her panties with "Booty Call" printed across the back. I can't help but wonder. She has never had underwear like that in 33 years. What gives?

DEAR SURPRISED: Was your wife wearing the lingerie at the time? If not, how did you discover the panties?

The surest way to get to the bottom of this would be to ask your wife this question. She may have thought they were cute and bought them on impulse - or they may have been a gift. Please let me know, because not only am I interested in her answer, but I'm sure millions of readers are curious, too.


DEAR ABBY: I just dropped off my 13-year-old son at a party. He's a seventh-grader, and when I take him to a friend's house, if I haven't met the parents, I walk him to the door and introduce him and myself to them.

I do this to try to make sure the parents are at home and responsible. (Honestly, if they weren't, I'd take my son and leave.) I know it embarrasses him, but most parents thank me because they want to meet the parents of the kids who are in their homes.

I just can't believe that someone would simply drop off a child and speed away when he/she has absolutely no clue who these people are. Recently, a ninth-grader in our school district had a house party where 30 kids received underage-drinking citations!

Parenting is not being your child's best friend. Please encourage parents not to be afraid to reach out to other parents. It really does take a village.

DEAR VIGILANT: Your children are fortunate to have a mother who is as involved in their lives as you are. Your son may find your vigilance embarrassing, but take comfort in knowing that all kids your son's age find their parents embarrassing. Orchids to you for pointing out the importance of parents networking with each other to ensure that their children are safe and supervised.
