Ann Landers It's How We Take It That Counts DEAR ANN: My problem may seem trivial to you but it is breaking my heart. Ever since I can remember I have looked forward to the biggest social event of a teenager's life — the junior - senior prom. I used to dream about what I would ,wear and how I would have my hair fixed. I even planned Ann Landers, things to say, and how to say goodnight to my folks when we left the house. Well, all my dreams are shattered because nobody has asked me to go. All my friends have been, invited to go and I've been hoping that maybe a few of the boys who have been pleasant to me were just bashful, and holding off. But now I am sure I will not be asked at all. How can I hold back the tears when I hear the girls discussing their gowns and all the last minute details? I hate for them to pity me but I am sure they are doing that right now. Please give me some help. I am— CRUSHED DEAR CRUSHED: If you knew of the number of letters I have received similar to yours you wouldn't feel so "alone." And this is one of the sad things about proms or any special event where some people are bound to be left out. It 'does hurt. But it isn't the end of the world, Honey. You will survive the blow and it will fade from memory. Life can be tough and disappointments and heartaches come to everyone sooner or later. Nobody escapes. So consider this disappointment as one of the trials that must be faced. And remember, it's not what happens to us but how we take it that counts. * * * * DEAR ANN: It's obvious that you don't know anything about brewing tea—or the proper use of teabags, When a woman wrote and asked what to do with the sloppy-looking thing, you said a guest should not be faced with the problem—that the hostess should remove the tea bag in the kitchen. The idea of the tea bag is so that each person can brew tea to his own taste. Some peo- ple like it weak, and others like it brisk. What sense is there in having a tea bag if it's going to be removed in the kitchen? It's a good thing you aren't the food editor or you'd starve to death.—TEA LOVER DEAR LOVER: Many food editors who are not starving to death wrote to tell me I was off base with my answer. Your letter, however, was the sweetest. Thank you. So, three lashes with a wet tea bag for me. And think you for writing. » * * * DEAR ANN: I have been a widow for 10 years. The man next door lost his wife about a year ago. Our relationship was always a pleasant one. A few months ago this man began to show an interest in me. He began by inviting me to an art exhibit, along with his sister and brother-in-law. We had a delightful evening. He invited me to other affairs after that, usually with his sister and brother-in-law along, but sometimes alone. I got the definite impression that his fondness for me was increasing and that he would ask me to marry him. I would have said yes. Suddenly he stopped calling and it was as if he had dropped off the planet. I thought perhaps he might be ill, so I called him. He said, bluntly; "My sister felt I was becoming too interested in you and that people were talking, I thought it best to terminate the relationship." I am heartsick. What do you suggest?—M.R.T. DEAR M.R.T.: A man who could be so easily influenced by his sister is no red-hot bar- WORD-A-DAY By BACK / MALCOLM, DID YOU [ ANSWER AN AD FOR ^ TWIST LESSONS?.' 8 didactic PERTAINING TO.
