always been a good provider. We have a lovely home in the suburbs
and my wife has an unlimited charge account at Marshal Field's. I've
always encouraged her to take night courses in art history and French
cooking, so you can see I'm in favor of improving her mind.
joined the League of Women Voters and I nodded my approval. She even
started picketing with Women for Peace and I said yes. I agreed that
it was good for women to question their government as long as dinner
was on time and my shirts were ironed, However, now she's gone too
far. She talked to this radical who convinced her that she ought to
define herself, and some nonsense about liberating herself.
I believe in humoring women, but I'm sick of TV dinners and wrinkled
collars. Can I convince her true happiness is found in a well-done
Dear L. L.,
wife has obviously lost confidence in your manhood since she seeks
fulfillment elsewhere. You must try to convince her that it is exciting
to be part of your world-- have you tried MAN TAN
used to be a movement bureaucrat and do city wide co-ordinating. My
chick was always with me and a great help since I don't type, and
she was much better on the phone asking for money and favors. Then
I decided that in order to be more effective I should broaden my experience,
I decided to organize a working class neighborhood. Fortunately, my
chick had no political disagreement with me so she came along, For
a while we we doing great. My chick would go into a local bar and
start up conversations with some of the guys. Then I would come in
after and join in, talking political stuff.
But lately, my chick has started hanging around grocery stores. If she
does come into a bar, she just talks to the women and doesn't help me
get to know the guys. Now that's the important issue, the way she is
messing up our organizing. But also she 's talking about women's liberation
stuff and refuses to cook all the time (although she the better cook)
and insists I learn to type.
How can I get her back to using her best talents in everyday tasks and
being a good organizer ?
Perhaps you could analyze women 's liberation as counter-revolutionary
and re-enlist her support If you do come up with such an analysis, please
send me a copy as I have many readers with similar problems.
last night these beautiful people came over and we all got stoned out
of our minds.. grooving this way out music and I was lying on my chick
s lap touching her body- this guy Ethan and I were grooving each other's
minds like we were really on the same wave length CAN YOU DIG IT ?,
. . And suddenly this freakout started to happen my chick started to
rap and wouldn't stop. . . . I don't even know what she was saying man
all I know -is here was my chick rapping man and she sat up and like
she wasn 't my chick anymore. . like she was far away. ....,like she
was tuned in to herself more than to me. . like man I groove on independent
chicks and all but . . like I'm her man and it was really nice lying
on her lap. . so we had this fight, and she called me an m. c. give
me some words man.. . I'm up tight
that drugs are liable to cause very unusual occurences. Women sometimes
get upset by some little thing that happens around the house. Perhaps
the rapping your chick did was a way of getting your attention because
she feels insecure. Tell her you think she 's great and she'll probably
be o. k.
