New Year’s Resolutions
From Mama To Papa, With Love
By RUTH MILLETT
Since nobody keeps New Year's
resolutions anyhow and all the fun
is in making them—it might be
even more fun if this year wives
thought up their husbands’ reso
lutions and husbands thought up
some for their wives.
If that plan were followed, most
wives would have some of the fol
lowing resolutions on their hus
bands’ list:
I will be as attentive and witty
when we entertain an old school
friend of my wife’s—whom she
wants to impress—as I am when
the girl I used to go with pays us
a visit.
I will not react to the sugges
tion that the living room needs a
new carpet in the same manner I
would react to my wife’s an
nouncing that she must have a
mink coat.
I will not stubbornly keep silent
when my wife tries to get me to
tell her about my work, and then
1 sit entranced for hours at a nartv
because I can talk about it to an
other woman.
I will not refer to my wife, be
hind her back, as “the old lady,"
“the little woman,” or "the wife.”
I will manage to say “Swell” m
a hearty, not hollow, voice when
my wife tells me that her Cousin
Agatha is coming for a visit.
I will listen when my wife talks
to me, so that 1 am not forever
saying “Why didn’t you tell me
that?”
AND STILL
THEY COME
*1 won’t once say: “THAT’S a
woman for you.”
I will not talk about the role 1
would play in National Defense
“if I didn’t have a wife and fami
ly to think about.”
I will occasionally startle my
wife by acting pleased about go
ing out after dinner.
I will write my own thank-you
letters and will hot expect my
Wife to keep my family inf-irme.1
as to my state of health.
