  1. Dear Mollie,

    My husband teases me that I always try to do the “right thing.” But I once had a friend who was brutally honest, and I do not believe that this is a good thing. You don’t tell a friend her blouse looks terrible, if she asks. You tell her it is a nice blouse. And that is a white lie.

    Most cordially, Celia
