Just Ask Alice

 

Alice is on vacation this week, so we have pulled one of her old columns and reprinted.

DEAR ALICE: How can you tell when a boy becomes a man?

— WONDERING IN WILMOT

DEAR WOND: A boy becomes a man when he stops asking his dad to give him some money and asks to borrow some.

—ALICE

DEAR ALICE: Do you believe there is such a thing as plain old good luck?

— CURIOUS IN CAMPTOWN

DEAR CUR: Sure I believe in good luck. It’s the only way I can explain the success of people I can’t stand.

  • ALICE

**********

DEAR ALICE: My parents have a friend who thinks he knows everything. I’d like to catch him off guard and tell this know-it-all something he can’t possibly already know. Any suggestions?

— WAITING IN WYSOX

DEAR WAI: Tell him what other people think of him. That’s something he obviously doesn’t know.

—ALICE

**********

DEAR ALICE: I’d just love to wake up some morning and find myself famous. Any ideas on how I might do it?

— BUDDING GENIOUS,

BURLINGTON

DEAR BUD: The first step is to wake up some morning and find yourself.

—ALICE
