Woman Wonders if Fruit Giver Is Really a Fruitcake
DEAR ABBY: During the holidays someone left a beautiful big basket of fruit on my doorstep. I thought it a wonderful gesture, but after careful examination, I found there was not a card or any sort of identification on it anywhere.
Now, I’m not usually the fraidy-
cat sort of person, but alter thinking about it, and having checked with friends and co-workers fall to no avail), I became rather concerned. Who would leave such a lovely basket with no card? Any other time I would have no qualms about eating it, but because of the Tylenol

deaths and other such scares, there is no way I would eat it or give it to anyone else. Ifs a shame. Maybe I am being overly cautious, hut then again, what if I’m not?
To the person, or persons, who left it, please don’t ever do anything like that again. If there was nothing wrong with it, a lovely basket of fruit went to waste. And if there was something in it, well, God help you.
By the way, there were three people home the day it was put on the doorstep. If anyone knocked or rang our bell, nobody heard it. Only a few people at work even know where I live, and I checked with the neighbors to see if it could have been delivered to us by accident, and maybe their relatives were asking if they’d received it. Nothing. It seems so strange that no one knows where it came from, who delivered it, and no one saw anyone leave it on the step.
Tell me, Abby, am I being foolish?
JUDITH K., ST. LOUIS
DEAR JUDITH: Foolish? Certainly not. I wouldn’t eat it either. The most plausible explanation: The giver probably delegated the job of delivering it to someone who was not very responsible — and the card that should have been delivered with the basket was “lost.”
After this hits print, let me know if the giver comes forward.
DEAR ABBY: This is not tragic or world-shaking, but I would like your opinion and possibly the opinion of your readers.
I just discovered that my college-age daughter does not wear underwear (panties). I was shocked and told her I thought it was indecent. She replied. “I don’t want panty lines.”
She is a hard-working student, works part-time in a department store and does not drink, smoke or use drugs. I am very proud of her, but this really bothers me. Am I hopelessly old fashioned? Or is this a common practice among young women today?
DEAR SHOCKED: Old-fashioned? Not really. But in your daughter’s case the absence of panties has more to do with vanity than “decency.”
CONFIDENTIAL TO ILL. IN IOWA CITY: You speak so much of being “good.” Please define goodness. As G.K. Chesterton said: “The word ‘good* has many meanings. For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of 500 yards, I should call him a good shot, but not necessarily a good man."
