Dear Margo,
I'll make this short and sweet. What is the proper amount of time to stay at a come & go party? - Wanting to be correct

Dear Wanting,
Yours is one of those unanswerable questions like, "How much is too much?" Because you seem unsure of how to gauge "the proper amount of time to stay at a party, and when to come and go," I'd suggest you arrive maybe fifteen minutes after the stated beginning time, stay as long as you're having a good time, and don't be the last to leave unless you and the hosts are having a great discussion.

Our Reader to Reader Question of the Week:

Dear Readers,
, whatever they needed I provided. What really hurt my son and I the most was the obituary - we were not mentioned at all. Our friends (mine and hers) were appalled. I was embarrassed and upset for not just me, but for my son-who loved her also. I never been so upset. Her x-husband put his wife and kids and their grandchildren in the obituary, who my girlfriend barely knew. They live an hour away from us. I know its silly to be mad over a little section of the newspaper, but it still hurts. Will time let this devastating loss of her and this article ever go away? I am so angry at this whole situation, its not like we can go and rewrite an obituary notice.

Tell us what you think?
