Good husband picks up bad habit by chewing tobacco
DEAR ABBY: Regarding the letter from “St. Paul Wife,” whose husband’s scratchy beard was her biggest complaint:
I would be gla'd to change places with her. My husband’s newfound habit has definitely put a strain on our marriage. He chews tobacco.
As “St. Paul Wife” stated, “If my husband had had a beard when I first met him, I would not have even considered dating him ...” Well, if my husband had been chewing tobacco when I met him, I would not have even spoken to him.
He is a good provider and a good husband and father —which far outweighs his one nasty habit — but I have seriously considered divorce because he is no longer sexually attractive to me.
Beards, I have no problem with, but chewing tobacco is out of the question! i

After a dose call at home plate, I called the runner safe. The first basewoman ran up to the plate and began calling me every name in the book. I told her to get out of my face. When she wouldn’t let up, I told her she was ejected from the game.
I suddenly found myself lying on the ground. My jaw was numb. A crowd had gathered, and some were daring me to get up and fight! I wasn’t fully aware that the woman had hit me until I got back on my feet and saw her standing over me with her dukes up, ready to hit me again. I instinctively raised my hands as if to say “enough” — when

Incredibly, people — including my best friend — began ridiculing me and calling me a wimp. In my office a few days later, my secretary

asked, “Have you tried the battered men’s shelter?”
Abby, I am 42 years old, stand 5 foot 8 inches tall and weigh 150 pounds. The female who attacked me stands 6 foot 3 and weighs about 180. She played four years of college basketball on a scholarship. How can I be expected to defend myself against someone 30 pounds heavier, a head taller and 20 years younger — male or female?
I am sick of being ridiculed. Will you please tell my wife and friends that I am not a wimp?
RETIRED UMP IN ATLANTA
DEAR RETIRED UMP, HIS WIFE AND FRIENDS: In a civilized society, men are taught from childhood that men should not hit women. You proved you
were a gentleman, not a wimp.
However, you broke the (unwritten) cardinal rule: Never remove your mask during an altercation.
P.S. As for the Amazon who hit you, she should be traded to the Giants.
