Ask Amy: Baby shower brings on infantile behavior

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

If the expectant parents want their own baby shower to be postponed – and for a very good reason, I might add – then it should be postponed!

Yes, postponing this would have caused you a headache on the day, but you should have done so for the sake of these young parents, instead of focusing only on a party that you wanted to have on a particular day and in a particular way.

The pandemic has caused everyone to rethink, replan, retool, postpone and occasionally cancel celebration events drawing large groups.

It would have been wisest to draw up a contingency plan.

Instead of that, you should draw up an apology, and then deliver it.

Dear Amy: I have been cheating on my partner, “Q.”


I just don't think I can be with just one person, especially because Q doesn’t offer me the best sex I have ever had.

When Q found out, they said they had known about my cheating for a while but didn't want to break up over it. Q said it does hurt a lot, sometimes.

But Q also said that my cheating is kind of a turn-on.

Knowing I am with other people makes Q feel luckier to be with me.
