She has to touch and mess with everything. She breaks things all the time and embarrasses me beyond words if I ever go with her to a public place. Mom plays with computers, cash registers and anything that catches her eye. She looks into everything, including closets, cabinets and jewelry cases. When she visits our home, I have to lock the door to keep her from entering the bathroom while I'm in it, and have told her to keep out of my kitchen because she knocks things out of the pantry. | Believe it or not, Mom is mentally stable. There is nothing wrong with her, she's just a pain in the neck. I have two children and don't have an extra set of arms and eyes to watch out for a grown woman. I'm tired of her breaking my things and not bothering to apologize. What can I do? - Fed Up Daughter-In-Law Dear Fed Up: Mom sounds like an overgrown child, and a klutzy one at that; Has Mom ANNIE'S MAILBOX By Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar always been this way? If her behavior is recent, you might want to alert her physician. If this is "just Mom," try to be tolerant. "Mom-proof" your house when she visits the same way you would keep children out of cabinets and drawers. If she breaks something, call it to her attention and ask her not to touch your fragile items. (Insist that your husband back you up.) And while you might want to keep an eye on her in public places, there is no need to be embarrassed. You are not responsible for her childlike curiosity and clumsiness. Dear Annie: You recently printed a letter from "Lonely in New York," a 36-year-old virgin who couldn't meet women.

And since I don't drink, bars and nightclubs are out of the question." You suggested he try, among other things, the Internet. There are plenty of people who sit in bars but don't drink. They go to meet people because that's where people are. "Lonely" needs to make the effort to go where he has the best chance of finding someone, and that might mean stepping outside his comfort zone. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. - Not Lonely in New York Dear Not Lonely: We're not so certain he would be interested in meeting women in bars, and frankly, there's no reason he can't find suitable women in other places. But "stepping outside his comfort zone" is a good suggestion. Here's one more letter with some helpful ideas: Dear Annie: "Lonely" struck a note with me. He should know that there are more of us around than he realizes. We are not the beautiful people or the social butterflies. We are the plain and the painfully shy. We may be overweight, gawky, too short or too tall.. Confidence? Forget it. We haunt the libraries, video stores, pet shops and bookstores. We do our grocery shopping in record time, wishing we could be part of that cute couple in the produce section and, at the same time, praying that no one talks to us. The Internet allows people to pretend to be what they are not. However, it also allows us to! get to know the inner person without the physical trappings getting in the way. Some amazing friendships can come about in this manner.' Befpre "Lonely" gives up on life, he should '. remember that there is always another flower, to smell or road to travel. If it's not in the cards to find someone, so be it. He can help out at a community center, mow a neighbor's lawn or, volunteer at the Salvation Army. Each act of, kindness may put him closer to that special 1 someone he so deeply wants to meet. -> Painfully Shy and 49 in Detroit HBO MAX SHOW "Walk" [Movie: * * * * "A Beautllul Hind" (2001) Russell Crowe. |The Sopranos A (5:45) Movie: "Hall Past Dead" A [Movie: *** "Sleepers" (1996) Kevin Bacon.
