Wife Who's Tired of Husband Finds What She Wants in Class

DEAR ABBY: My wife thinks I'm weird because I put ice cream on my shredded wheat in the mornings. I figure it's a dairy product, and besides, it tastes good! What's your opinion? -- EVERETT IN LAGUNA HILLS, CALIF.

DEAR EVERETT: If you're not concerned about saturated fat or calories, the practice is all right with me. However, an equally tasty and healthier alternative would be to sweeten your cereal with flavored nonfat yogurt. (It's delicious with oatmeal.)
