Hi Ya, Lois! I'm a real animal freak. Like I mean I like real unusual animals. I have a gila monster and a spider monkey for pets. I used to have a boa constrictor, but one day my mom clobbered it with the vacuum cleaner when it crawled out from under my bed. Do you have any pets?------------ Animal Lover
Dear Animal Lover: Yes, I have two pets, but of the more ordinary kind. I have a little dog named G.C.F. and a gold fish named L.C.M. G.C.F. is 3/8 beagle + 1/4 cocker spaniel + 1/8 poodle + X. The "X" stands for the part of him I'm not sure about. L.C.M. enjoys swimming under the oriental bridge in his bowl. I guess you could say he takes after his owner.
Dear Ms. Terms: What is the answer to 7 X 8? I have a terrible time remembering it. My dad says I would forget my last name if it wasn't written down. ---------- Roger Dun...uh...uh, oh, never mind
P.S. Please hurry. I have a math test next period.
Dear Rog: 7 X 8 is not hard to remember. It's as easy as 5, 6, 7, 8. Just write down those four numbers and arrange the signs like this:
5 6 = 7 x 8
Here's a cheer that might help you:
"Five! Six! Seven! Eight!
Who do we appreciate?
Fifty-six! Fifty-six! Fifty-six!"
Dear Lois: What can I do to get this boy to notice me? His locker is next to mine, and he is absolutely divine. I've tried everything. Yesterday, I dropped all my books on the floor right in front of his locker. All he did was trip over my English book and kick it into Mr. Parton's room. By the time I got all my books picked up, I was late for French class and got detention. Help! ------------Locked Out of His Life
Hey Listen Locked Out: This is a math column, not a lonely-hearts column!
