MISS MANNERS: What is the best way to respond to a good friend/pal when they ask, "Did you think of me today?" A friend responded on Facebook to one of his friends, "No, I did not," and the individual was very angry with that response. Is there a better way to respond?
GENTLE READER: It seems to Miss Manners that if the friend did not want to receive one of only two possible answers to his question, that he should not have posed it. Not responding at all would have been the more accurate -- and telling -- answer.
