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?
I think you are CORNfused. Sloppy habits know no gender.
Sheila’s Corn Relish
1 bag frozen corn
1 can black beans, drained
green onions, chopped
red peppers, diced
1 TBL vinegar
Tabasco sauce, to taste
Mix everything together. Chill before eating.

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.
