Eight Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Thursdsy Evening, June 28, 1962. ,. For A Summer Day News <™d Views By Mary D'Andrea • Remember that married man mentioned a couple of columns I ago who became a bachelor again when his wife took a trip without him? Well, we're happy to report that he survived and his Mrs, is back and everything is again normal. His manner of survival was quite interesting when you consider that his reaction to a kitchen stove is similar to his wife's reaction to a power saw. But from his unique method emerges a theory that may well serve all husbands left alone for a • certain length of time (like two weeks) with no one to talk to .but the television set and the dog. FIRST OF ALL, we'll completely discount his bouts with the automatic washer because there weren't any .... his wife ' considerately provided him with a full supply of clean clothes before she left because she probably knew what would befall ;her poor, defenseless washer if she didn't . . . Then we'll concentrate on the main problem that plagues '. every man whether his wife is home or not ... his stomach ... it's empty , . .it's always empty . . . hungry growls echo , constantly . . . when he leaves for work after a hearty breakfast • his stomach sends a message to the brain . . . "what's for dinner ..." • So you can understand the dilemma our hero faced. After a lew days, he developed a very philosophical approach to the acute hunger problem: HE SIMPLY FIXED dry cereal in the morning . . . (anyone can pour cereal from a box) ... He ate a huge lunch downtown . . . (three orders of meat!) He satisfied himself with something simple in the evening • . . (grilled cheese and peanut butter) ... ; And kind-hearted neighbors also came to the rescue on several occasions. He arrived at the above plan of attack on starvation after a few attempts at food preparation. Frozen and ready-to-eat '. packaged foods are the greatest ... he was told. So he believed it. He tried a Frozen dinner, complete with mashed potatoes (he just couldn't believe that). Unfortunately it didn't come out quite right because he tried heating it on top of the stove instead of in the oven. (He didn't think- it made any difference •. . after all, heat is heat. . .) Then there was the final episode with the instant baked potatoes with cheese sauce that come in a package with those cute little "boats." After opening the package he discovered that the potatoes were NOT in the aluminum "boats" at all ... you had to MIX the potatoes . . . then the cheese sauce . . . then put these mixtures in the containers . . . and then bake them ... in the oven. (After several attempts he discovered that it's better to strike a match and THEN turn on the gas when lighting an oven.) The picture on the package didn't even vaguely resemble the fiendish-looking packets inside . . . and after narrowly escaping death while trying to light the oven ... he solved his problem by eating a cheese sandwich. He also theorized that since there were four."boats" and he was the only one eating, he'd have cheesy baked potatoes on four consecutive nights, and that would surely kill him. (Of course, there was the dog but he was still sick from some other • left-overs.) AND AS THE SUN SET on our hero's final day as a bachelor it found him gently'blowing the dust off the furniture, gliding the broom around here and there, picking up "things" and putting them carefully away (in the clothes hamper) and doing up his few dishes ... in cold water. He could honestly say the place was as spic and span as when, his wife left. As a result of this amazing plan for survival, we are seriously considering the establishment of an exclusive club open only "to husbands who perform the outstanding feat of surviving in a wifeless household; therefore doing services far beyond the call of duty . . ." We'll call it the OHWSWTWFTW (or the Oragniza- tion of Husbands Who Survived Without Their Wives for Two Weeks). We've even got an idea for a nice membership pin .... a tiny gold-plated replica of a grilled cheese sandwich . . .
