In my 61 years I have learned many things and have some good old-fashioned common sense. Send your questions to Eleanor@epochalips.com.
Why do a lot of lesbians use photos of their dogs on Facebook rather than their own? What’s with lesbians and their dogs? I don’t get it!
Dear Anti Pooch,
I don’t get it either. I thought lesbians liked pussy…cats. BA
My gf is very classy and fashionable, dresses nicely, and many people think we are a handsome couple. The problem is, she has an annoying habit of sucking her teeth and making a smacking sound, how do you suggest I handle this?
If you live in LA I think I know who you are talking about. This is delicate because obviously your gal needs help in dislodging items from her teeth. Unfortunately AYGO (As You Get Older) plays a part here. We learn the meaning of long in the tooth… gingival recession. She probably doesn’t realize how annoying it is! I would get her The Doctor’s Brush Picks, available at any drug store— they’re great. Another thing you might try is: start making those sounds yourself and exaggerate it and see how she likes it. Good luck! BA
I was on my way to work using public transportation and experienced a person lashing out at someone else in a very loud angry tone. No one said anything, and everyone continued to read their newspapers or listen to their iPods. My question to you is: should someone have said something?
I don’t mean to make light of the situation, but the person yelling may have been mentally ill. Unfortunately many large cities are filled with people in dire need of help. The fact that so many are homeless adds to the problem. Having said that, a good way to know whether to get involved is whether the person in question is a happy crazy person or an angry crazy person. Angry crazy is dangerous, stay away from that. Thank you for caring. BA
