Dear Read­ers, It brings me great joy to be able to share with you some of the let­ters I’ve been hold­ing on to over the last 8 or 9 months. The Pub­lic News gra­ciously asked me to con­trib­ute to this is­sue since it has been a whole year since they started this dig­i­tal chan­nel of pub­li­ca­tion. So my dears, here we go.

Dear Anna: My son is in 3rd grade at a very ex­pen­sive pri­vate school in the Wood­lands. I re­cently dis­cov­ered that he is the only one in the whole school with­out a smart­phone. I need to make sure that he doesn’t suf­fer need­lessly for not hav­ing what the other kids, even those younger than he, have. My hus­band thinks I’m be­ing an id­iot over the whole mat­ter. I need your help. -Ma­te­ri­al­ist Mom in The Wood­lands

Dear Ma­te­ri­al­ist Mom: Je­sus woman get a grip. Do you know that there are kids in third world coun­tries that don’t even own a flip phone yet they don’t have one inch of the feel­ing that they are miss­ing out. Your hus­band is right, you are an id­iot.

Dear Anna, I am a con­fi­dent ed­u­cated and good-look­ing woman. My prob­lem is with guys who cat call at me, tell me I’m sexy hot and other sex­ist la­bels. I’m very of­fended by this be­hav­ior and I have no way around it since th­ese are the guys work­ing in our of­fice build­ing. I’m tired of be­ing treated like I’m ev­ery man’s sex fan­tasy. What do you sug­gest? Hot in Hum­ble

Dear Hot In Hum­ble, Do what the gals in Iran do. Wear a black burka and shut the hell up. Dear Anna, I’ve been raised in a small ru­ral town in Texas where all the folks are like me, sim­ple. My par­ents al­lowed me to do what ever I wanted, where ever I wanted as of­ten as I pleased. Need­less to say, I grew up with­out bound­aries, at least this is what my girl­friend tells me. I’m about to go to the big city col­lege in Hous­ton and I need some ad­vice on how to sur­vive. I’ve never been out­side of my lit­tle town. Hous­ton is scary. I’ve heard and read that there are some in­ter­est­ing char­ac­ters that I should be aware of. What point­ers can you give me? Pet­ri­fied in Pe­cos

Dear Pet­ri­fied in Pe­cos As long as you mind your man­ners, say ‘please’, ‘thank you’ and don’t throw your body flu­ids on oth­ers, you should do al­right.

Dear Anna, I am in a pickle. I’m mar­ried to a won­der­ful guy, great provider and a ter­rific fa­ther. My prob­lem is with his looks. I used to think that he was all that, you know, hand­some, charm­ing and funny. All my other girl­friends used to flirt with him. So I made cer­tain that none of my so-called friends were go­ing to steal him away from me. So we eloped and were hap­pily mar­ried for al­most five years when I re­al­ized that I prob­a­bly made a mis­take. I’m just not that into him any­more. To make things worse, I met a guy at the gro­cery store that also lives on my street. He is a real hot­tie, if you know what I mean. So what do I do? Do I live life with an ugly guy or take the hot­tie on the side? Thanks, Hot Beauty in The Wood­lands

Dear Hot Beauty, You didn’t make any mis­takes, Your hus­band did.
