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