• . x ,, . 96 Pounds Equals Ton oj Trouble By Abigail Van Burtn U IM; fty Cftiufi ttiNM-N. Y. Ntwt »«*.,' Irtt.l DEAR ABBY: Jhru a club my husband and I belong to I recently met a handsome, young, unattached man I'll call Randy. ' .'-.".• •. .. : •'-" . ' •'; \. • • .. i •' First, let me tell you that I'm 5 feet, 1 inch, weigh 96 pounds, am bow-legged and have no figure to speak of. I am not witty or cute, or anything special. Take my word for it, I'm not being modest. , Artyway, this Randy person always greets me with outstretched arms, a big grin, and a compliment. He has told me I'm sweet, adorable, desirable, and 96 pounds of woman! I know he's feeding me a line, but after being married for 9 years to a man who has never given me a compliment, it's delicious. When Randy could have any woman at the club—single or married—what in the world does he want with me? YOUNG AGAIN DEAR YOUNG: He may want 96 pounds of I married I woman but I doubt that he wants the ton of trouble that would come with the deal in this case. DEAR ABBY: Will you settle .an argument for us? Do you think women dress to please men or to please other women? TWO WOMEN DEAR WOMEN: Which women? Some women dress to please men in general. Other women dress to please their boyfriends or husbands,;specifically. Still others dress in the latest fashions because they want to be "In." [They please only the merchants.! '..->•"" The wisest woman of all knows what looks best on HER and she wears it. • DEAR ABBY: I am a widow, living on a limited income. A neighbor of mine [and her children] are always asking me to buy tickets, chances, greeting cards, etc. I simply can't afford to buy things I neither need nor want just to please her, but I am running out of excuses. The last time I refused, she told me I was "unneighborly." Abby, I feel it is unneighborly of her to keep pestering me and putting me on the spot. I don't enjoy refusing to buy. It's necessary. What is your opinion? CAPTIVE CUSTOMER DEAR CAPTIVE: When you are asked to buy something you don't need and can't afford, simply say you can't afford it, and that should be the end of it. If you offer "excuses" instead of reasons, you'll continue to be pestered. \i i CONFIDENTIAL TO "SAD SACK IN S AGIN AW": No one said it better than Mark Twain'. 1 "Grief can take care of itself but to get the full value of ]6ft you/*ntitf'tuft0 someone 'to 1 share it with." r>\ M"'i-'ifU:. 1 .'-;-. :•>•.»/<•••'; <-.••...)(• Burt/ girl married Engaged MR.
