Q. What should I answer when my wife asks, “Does this dress make me look fat?”
-Donald, Long Beach

A. Don’t even look. Just bellow “NO!” immediately, with great confidence that you’ve found the correct answer.

Q. What is my safe answer when my wife asks, “How do I look in this dress?”
-Irwin, Palos Verdes Estates

A. This one requires more sublety. It depends on whether you want dinner that night. But you can’t go wrong with “Spiffy!”
