-- UNSURE IN THE WEST DEAR UNSURE: If your former best friend is unwilling to explain why she ended the friendship and has been spreading false rumors, you can't force her. Obviously, her malicious lies haven't had any effect on the bride. Go to the party and the wedding, mingle with those who haven't chosen sides, be gracious and steer clear of the nasty bridesmaid, if you can. That way, if there is any drama at either function, you won't be the person who created it, and the person who will look bad will be the troublemaker. DEAR ABBY: Could you please explain why so many people blow their noses at the supper table? You would think older folks would know better, but it seems like they are the worst offenders. I see a lot of this in restaurants or the cafeteria. I not only consider it rude but also gross. Why can't people excuse themselves from the table and leave the room to do it?
