I'ageg —NAl'GA TUCK NKWS (Conn.) Friday. June 4. IMS Dear Ann Landers: My husband and I are in our 40s, married over 20 years. The problem I am writing about is Ihe bed. lief ore you jump toany conclusions, let me assure you that our sex life is terrific, but like most people in llwir 40s our sleep patterns have changed. We used lo sleep cuddled up together, but now he complains that 1 am "leaning" on him. Our bed is the slanJard 57-inch type. Space was never a problem before, but now I'm conscious of Ihe facl lhal he lakes more than his 28',j inches. And be snores louder lhan he used to. Much louder. If I get up in Ihe night logo lo the bathroom he is annoyed because "I woke him up." Last week 1 said, "Honey. I want twin beds." He was hurt insulled and outraged. Why do men consider il a sexual rejection? 1 guess the only solution is to START married life in twin beds, but it's too late for that now. Any suggestions? - Morpheus Where Are You? , Dear Morph: Sleep is cssenlialto good health. You will both profit from Ihe change. But this sort of a transition, after 20 years, should be engineered with imagination and tact. Buy him a whistle for his bedside table. Have the following inscription engraved on it: "If you want me, just whistle." Dear Ann Landers: Topic: Family Hassle. Our parents will soon be celebrating their 50lh wedding anniversary. We, the children, are getting logelber to give them a lovely party. Now comes the problem about Ihe family picture. My brother, his wife and children had Iheir pictures laken for their last Christmas card. You'd have toseeil lo believe il, Ann. They all wore red and green plaid jackets. A more ludicrous sight would be liardloimagine. They looked likea musical unit. Mv sister-in-law lold me today they've decided to wear Iheir plaid jackets in Ihe 50th anniversary picture, the resl of us think the women should all wear plain, dark dresses and Ihe men dark suits. Tlie children can wear pastels not prints, stripes or polka doLs. Are we being unreasonable? — Say Cheese. Dear Cheese: Put il on Ihe basis of majority rule and lake a vote. That's the democratic way lo settle (he problem. Dear Am Landers: I gol out of bed at 2 a.m. to write this letter. I tope "Super-Secretary" will read it. I'm a secretary also, and 1 have a friend who thinks she is a Super- Everything. Recently she bought her boss a very expensive suit of clothes for his birthday. When she told me about it 1 was appalled. II seemed like a very personal gifl - and outrageously expensive. To my amazement. I later heard that "Super's" boss was bragging to everyone in (he building about it. I Ihoughl maybe 1 was crazy and asked my boss for an opinion. He saidhe would never accept such a gifl — thatl was right. What ar e your vi ews, A nn? — Neva da Girl Friday. Dear Girl: I'm with you.
