Just Ask Alice
DEAR ALICE: We give people who apply for office work at our company this little math test. Not many get it right. See if you can. If I were to give you $20,000 minus 14 percent, how much would you take off?
DEAR BOSS: I’d take off everything but my earrings.
DEAR ALICE: My dad always mixes up the words “prescription” and “subscription.” Do you know a way to help him end his confusion?
—WONDERING IN WILMOT
DEAR WOND: Not really. I have trouble with those words myself. Why just the other day I noticed that I needed new glasses because my subscription ran out.
DEAR ALICE: My boyfriend is going to introduce me to his parents this weekend. We’re having dinner at their house. I’m nervous that I’ll make a bad impression. Any advice?
—WORRIED IN WYALUSING
DEAR WOR: Never miss an opportunity to keep your mouth shut.
DEAR ALICE: Is there a medical term used to describe a person whose brain is dead but their heart is still beating?
—CURIOUS IN CANTON
DEAR CUR: Folks in my neighborhood would call this person a liberal Democrat.
DEAR ALICE: What do you think is the most memorable movie kiss of all time? Some think it’s the one Rhett Butler gave Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind. Others think it was Burt Lancaster’s passionate rolling in the surf with Deborah Kerr in From Here to Eternity. What do you think?
— MOVIE MANIAC, MESHOPPEN
DEAR MOVIE: No question about it. To me the most memorable movie kiss was the one Tyson Wickhammer laid on me in the balcony of the Keystone Theatre on our first date back in 1963.
