Ask Amy: Family feud is sparked by tragic loss

– Befuddled Wedding Guest

Dear Befuddled: Assume that you are going solo.

After RSVP’s come in, couples sometimes find they have room for more guests, and issue a second round of invitations.

Dear Amy: The question from “Petite” exposed the challenges of a middle school teacher who was often confronted about her size.

At the opposite end of the scale, my husband is 6-foot-9 inches tall and people are always asking him incredulously, “How tall are you?!”

He often answers: “5- foot-21-inches” — and it's amazing how few people can figure that out.


– Gazing Up

Dear Gazing: I had to use my calculator.
