YES, THEY'RE IAADE OF THE FINEST ALLERGENS. Annie's Mailbox Dear Annie: For several months, my manicurist and I discussed her purchasing my husband's old car when he buys a new one. The day after my husband bought our new car, I called my manicurist to see if she was still interested in the old one. She said yes, and that she would try to come see it that weekend. I told her there was no hurry, but we would need to close the deal within the next two weeks, as I was going into the hospital. The next morning, my neighbor asked what we wanted for the car. I told him the price, but also said my manicurist was interested in the car. I promised to keep him posted. Friday night, I called my manicurist at work and left a message telling her when we'd be home and to feel free to stop by. Saturday came and I didn't hear from her, so late that afternoon I called again and left another message, saying someone else was interested in the car, but I would hold it until Monday, noon. By Monday noon, I still had not heard from her, so my husband sold the car to the neighbor. Wednesday, I got a call from my manicurist saying she just heard my messages because her son had been in the hospital for emergency surgery. She asked whether we had sold the car. I told her we had, and she was very angry. She said I had promised it to her. I apologized, but said my husband didn't want to continue paying insurance on it. She hung up in a huff and has not returned my call for an appointment. Where did I go wrong? — Dumped by a Manicurist in Bay City Dear Dumped: You told the manicurist there was "no hurry," but you wanted to sell within two weeks. By our count, you gave her about seven days. If your neighbor had not come by, the car likely still would have been there on Wednesday. We think you owe your manicurist a major apology, and if you want her to keep doing your nails, stop by with a nice gift as a way of making amends. Dear Annie: My husband and I Wbved to Kentucky several years ago. Through clubs and the church, we have met many nice people and have had them for dinner at our home several times. Though I don't have the most expensive china, it's quite lovely and I make what I would call great meals, yet no one invites us to their homes for dinner. These people are all friends of ours. I understand some folks feel their homes aren't fancy enough or they don't cook much, but it's the company I'm looking for. We've lived here eight years and have never received an invitation for dinner at any of these homes. Why? — Don't Understand Dear Don't Understand: We think your "lovely" china and "great meals" may be intimidating to those who feel their skills and dinnerware can't match up. If these friends reciprocate in other ways, leave it alone. If not, you can always stop feeding them, but we suggest giving them one more chance: Invite them for pizza on paper plates, tell them you hope they don't mind the informality, but it's their friendship you cherish. We hope they get it. — Write to Annie's Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190, Chicago, IL ore-mail REAL LIFE ADVENTURES CLOSE To HOME X THOUGHT AFTGK. OUR. AR6VM6H7 YOU W€R.€ LfA\//N& FO* GOOD.

My wife thinks that the beer interferes with the absorption of vitamins from food and from the capsules I take in the morning. That sounds ridiculous to me. — F.S. ANSWER: Two beers at dinner won't affect vitamin absorption from your food or the absorption of vitamins you took in the morning. The morning vitamins have been absorbed well before you drink any beer. Drunk in large amounts, alcohol can affect a person's vitamin status. For example, excessive amounts of alcohol can block the absorption of the B vitamin thi- amlne. Furthermore, it hastens thiamine's breakdown. The result of chronic alcoholism, when it creates a thiamine deficiency, is known as Wernlcke's encephalopathy—a destruction of brain cells. People with the condition lose control of eye muscles, and they see double images. They are unsteady when walking, even when they aren't drinking. If they develop memory problems and make up stories to cover their memory lapses, then the disorder is called Korsakoff's syndrome. - Write to Paultonohue, M.D.. P.O.
