DEAR ABBY: My wife is a wonderful woman and I appreciate her many good qualities, but she has one fault that drives me to distraction. When she wants to remind me of something, she doesn't TELL me, she writes me a note! It's not as if we weren't together half the time. When l get to the office, I find a note in my pocket: "Don;t forget to BBS up your car, and please pay. the electric bill. At breakfast, she had a note stuck under the toaster: "Get a haircut today, please." . Yesterday, she taped a note to my bathroom mirror: Are you going to do something about your mother's birthday, which is next Sunday? Or should I?" How can I get the message across to this note-happy woman that she has a voice to talk with, and I have ears to hear with and I wish she would communicate with me VERBALLY? Thanks. DEAR BUGGED: Use your voice to get the message to her ears. (On second thought, since she's so note-happy, write her a note.) DEAR ABBY: What do you do with a husband who wants to have his cake and eat it, too? H1SWIFE DEAR WIFE: If you're smart, you'll bake him TWO cakes. One to eat, and one to have.
