Dear Al A Carte,

My girlfriend is the biggest slob you ever met. Now, I thought this was the private domain of men.

I love her dearly, but hasn’t she crossed the line?

Perhaps you can try to help her get organized.
If that doesn’t work, designate a space in your home where she can be as messy as she wants – preferably behind closed doors.

Alexandra Anne — we call her Al A. She doesn’t mince words, she minces garlic.
