DEAR ABBY: A few months ago, I turned 50 and my co-workers held a small celebration. When we celebrate birthdays, we all have agreed to regift an item (usually a gag gift).
One of my presents was a black leather miniskirt and matching vest. I never planned on wearing it, but my husband, "Tom," and I were invited to an '80s-themed Halloween party and I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a costume, so we decided to go as a rock star and his groupie.
I left work early to get ready for the party. When Tom arrived home, he couldn't keep his eyes or hands off me. We never made it to the party and had the best sex we'd had in years. Before that night, our love life had been practically nonexistent.
Abby, please remind readers to always keep intimacy in their relationships. Apparently, Tom and I just needed to be creative and spice things up a little. -- HAPPIER IN PENNSYLVANIA
DEAR HAPPIER: That's a great suggestion. Now I know why your jack-o'-lantern was smiling.
