Alqona Kcmuth County Fiendish Uncle Not So Funny By Abigail Van Buren |c 1H> If CMcitt TritMM-N. V. Newt *rM\, (fill DEAR ABBY: 1 am a 15-year-old girl with a big problem. Please don't latigh, Abby, but my problem is that 1 am ticklish. And I mean like if someone just tickles me a little bit, 1 practically go into hysterics. Of course nearly everyone who knows me knows about how ticklish 1 am, but my uncle in particular takes advantage of this, and he will get a hold of me and tickle me until t am so played out from laughing and screaming that I always end up crying. ' My parents aren't much help, Abby, and I can't handle this alone. Please tell me what to do. TICKLISH DEAR TICKLISH: Being ticklish is no laughing matter, and I sympathize with you, Your uncle sounds like a first class nincompoop, who's probably sadistic to boot. When you see him next, give him fair warning that if he so much as puts a hand on you, you will clout him with a lamp, or whatever is handy. Then go ahead and do it. No jury would convict you. DEAR ABBY: I am 38, have four practically grown children, and I have a problem, the likes of which you've never heard. I guarantee you. Six months ago I married a 47-year-old man also divorced with three children. I had been a divorcee for six years. My husband assured me I had nothing to worry about because he had had an operation nine years before that made .it IMPOSSIBLE for him to father any more children. Naturally I took his word for it. Well, something went wrong because I am four months pregnant. My doctor confirmed it. I am just furious, Abby. My husband went back to the doctor who performed that operation on him, and the doctor said that the operation is 100% foolproof, there are no failures, and if I am pregnant, the baby can't be my husband's. Abby, I KNOW the baby can't be anybody else's: Tell me, are those operations on men always successful? If so, how come I am/PG? Can a blood test prove that my husband is the father of my baby? If he is, can my husband sue his doctor? v PG AT 38 DEAR PG: The operation your husband had is called a "vasectomy." If properly performed, it IS 100 per cent foolproof, but unfortunately it is not always properly performed. If your husband IS indeed your baby's father [and I believe you when you say he is | then he should go to a urologist for a "sperm test.'.' This will show beyond a doubt whether he is able to produce children or not. A blood test can be taken only after the baby is born, and can determine only who the baby's father is not ... NOT who he IS. Your husband CAN sue his doctor. Whether he can collect is another question. .DEAR ABBY: My husband is a pilot for a big air line, and on layovers in different cities the stewardesses frequently go out with the fellows, and.on occasion they go to dinner, movies- or sightseeing. My husband says this is the accepted thing. I am consumed by jealousy and tied up in knots just thinking about it. I need advice on how to handle the situation so I don't question him too much and get into fights with him when he comes home. I don't have any reason to doubt my husband but I can't rid myself of the jealous feelings I have. Move him very much, and am so afraid of what might happen as a result of the pretty new young faces that surround him. Can you help me? JEALOUS , DEAR JEALOUS: Jealousy is a "sickness." The twin germs which usually cause it are lick of self-confidence and mistrust. Don't quiz him, but let Urn know [good humoredly] that yon think he is quite a priie and are slightly jealous. [This will be his cue to reassure you. as anyone with sense enough to fly a plane must surely know.) Frankly, I don't think you have anything to worry about. The husband who swings away from home avoids mentioning other girls.
