Going Fishing With Wife Puts New Cast on Husband's Hobby

DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married for more than 30 years. Ours has been a very happy marriage. However, every night before going to bed, she puts her hair up in curlers. Now she keeps asking me why I don't kiss her goodnight when we go to bed.

Abby, how would you like to make love to a porcupine? She says she wants to look good for me the next day.

How would you suggest I solve this problem? -- FRANK B. IN CHICAGO

DEAR FRANK: Ask her to please wear a shower cap when she retires, or use hot rollers in the morning.
