A few years ago, accompanying my youngest daughter into a mall hat shop, I admired the baseball cap a young clerk was wearing. "Sorry, all we've got left is extra-extra-large," he said, thinking I was interested in buying one. "Be way too big for you. " I bet him it wouldn't. I won the bet. That hefty-sized head-covering looked like a toddler's yarmulke on me. "Wow," was all the awestruck clerk could manage. Once the shock wore off, he did manage to find a cap that fit me. But having grown used to a hatless existence, I didn't purchase it. That Christmas, though, my daughter gave it to me. Having inherited my head, she obviously felt my pain.

DEAR ABBY: After 27 years of marriage, my wife told me she is attracted to other women. To my knowledge, she has acted on this only once. Every day I wonder where our relationship stands. One day she can't see herself without me; the next, she says we should divorce. I don't know if I should end this or wait to see where it goes. I will need counseling if we divorce, but currently I can't afford it. Yes, I love her, but what matters most to me is that she is happy. I don't have anyone else to talk to about this.
