Dear Heloise: I recently went on a monthlong trip and needed some way of taking a month's supply of pills sorted by daily doses. In the pharmacy, next to the weekly pillboxes, I found a package of 50 small (3 inches by 2 1/2 inches) zipper-top clear, plastic pill bags, each having a place on the outside where the date could be written with a pen. I then put the bags holding the pills into a quart-size zippered bag. -- C.M. Stone in Houston

"Odessa Again," by Dana Reinhardt, begins with possibilities. Odessa Green-Light's family has just moved into a new house. After a few torturous days of sharing a room with her toad of a brother, her mom finally relents. She allows Odessa to move into the attic. Three days later, it begins. When Odessa stomps on the floorboards, she falls -- that "upside-down, over-under, inside out feeling" -- and lands with a thud in the same room but she's a step back in time. How cool. She has the opportunity to do things over again.
