Jj ear Early Riser Wearies Wife d«J U /an tLJuren tnaicM* DEAR ABBY: I have been married for only 2 months and already I am writing to DEAR ABBY. First let me say. that I. couldn't ask for a sweeter, more wonderful husband, but he has one fault. He's an early bird! Abby, if I don't get my eight hours sleep, the next day I'm a dishrag. My husband can get along nicely on four or five hours. If we go to sleep at midnight, Old Bright Eyes is up at the crack of dawn like a rooster at 4:30 a.m. He showers, shaves, and dresses and then I hear him in the kitchen banging the pot and pans around while he fixes himself breakfast. Then the odor of coffee perking and bacon and eggs frying wafts into the bedroom, and who can sleep? Abby, he doesn't have to be at work until 8 a.m. and we live only 15 minutes from his office, so what's his big hurry? Please don't tell me it's a wife' duty to get up when her husband does. Any other advice will be appreciated. "SLEEPING BEAUTY" DEAR "BEAUTY": Since there is no reason for Old Bright Eyes to get up at that hour, he should keep the racket down so you can sleep. Otherwise, ear plugs for your ears and a clothespin for your nose is the word from here. the wedding band broke out in tiny water blisters. He blamed it on the ring, so I went to a skin doctor with him. The doctor said it could be due to a metal allergy, so he taped Frank's wedding ring to his leg. The ring didn't bother his leg at all, but his finger healed up! Why then, Abby, would a man who has been married only 14 months, and claims to love his wife, be ashamed to wear a wedding ring and let the world know that be ts married? FRANK'S WIFE DEAR WIFE: Don't as- mime that your husband is "ashamed" to let the world know that he is maried just because he does not want to wear a wedding ring. As long as he acts married, he doesn't need the label. Accept him as he is. DEAR ABY: An interesting question came up in your column: Are men and boys cleaner than women and girls? For whatever this is worth, I have been a custodian in a public school for many years, and I have found that the boys use about three times as much soap and paper towels as the girls. PASSAIC, N.J. DEAR ABBY: Are men cleaner than women? I know it's a dangerous generalization, but after renting , out rooms for over 35 years, I can tell you that I would much rather rent to a man than a woman. I am not saying that ALL men are cleaner than ALL women, but I would much rather clean up after an untidy man than an untidy woman. Women tend to run to extremes. I a woman is neat, she is very, wry neat, but if she is sloppy, she is dirtier than a pig. SEEN BOTH Troubled? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal. 90069.
