Angel of Angels,
I'm not sure how much you know about life here in Dyeland
but you've seemed to know a lot in the past so I thought
I'd check with you. I've talked with Joshua about
this and I wish I'd thought to bring it up when he was
last here (in the flesh, I mean... I know he's always
here) but I guess I was so happy about my Dad being back
that I didn't think of it. Anyway... I've been
kind of anxious since everything happened last
month. I'm so glad and grateful that Maja is healing
up really well and that she's so excited about our
upcoming trip. We all are. It's just...
I can't unsee what I saw. I mean don't get me
wrong... Dad held it together really, really well
when everything was so uncertain. But I could tell
seeing Maja like that was killing him. Not literally
obviously. But somehow...
Dad's so strong. He really is the bravest person I
know... after Joshua, of course. And if he got so
rattled, how can I be sure I'd keep it together if
something happened to Rose?
I pray that you and Rose have a long, happy life
together. But, inevitably, trials will come your
way. I hope none are as dire as what your family
faced last month. However, even if they were, you
have the same Ally your Dad had and always has.
God would give you whatever strength you needed so long
as you asked Him. You would also have your family
around you, both in the flesh and in spirit. You
are yourself a brave, strong person who has already
survived many, many trials. If needed, I'm
confident you would have enough bravery and strength to
help your Rose. A word of caution: Don't let your
worries over a future event that may not even come to
pass put a damper on the joy you can find now, Max.
All the best to you and your intended!

Dear Angel of Angels,
At the end of next month, Violeta and I
will be starting college and we're both so
excited! I'm feeling a little nervous but I
think it's a good type of nervous. I can't wait
to see what the next four years are like for us!
There's something I wonder about, though.
Violeta is so pretty and so sweet and I just know
that, at some point, some guy(s) is/are going to take
a shine to her. I'm not sure if you've met
Violeta but I think you probably know a considerable
amount about her which means you know that she can get
a little... awkward and shy and even a little scared
when boys she doesn't know approach her with interest. What, if
anything, am I supposed to do in those cases? I
don't want Violeta to get into a difficult situation
but the I also wonder if intervening might mean
getting in the way of the next Andrew and
JenniAnn. Or even just a nice friendship.
What do you think?
Joshua always smiles so proudly when he speaks of
your compassion and now I can say I know why from
personal experience. It's very good of you to
be so concerned for your friend.
You and Violeta will both learn so much during your
college years and while much of that will come from
books and professors, a great deal of it will also
come from interactions with your classmates.
Violeta will need to learn how to respond to
unwanted romantic overtures herself. It's an
important life skill. You're right to point
out that interested parties may prove to be good
friends and you don't want to stand in the way of
that. Of course, if someone were to get too
pushy then I'm sure Violeta would appreciate your
support and coaching. Please tell Andrew and
JenniAnn if that happens and, naturally, look to
Joshua for the words to put the interloper in his
The Angel of Angels
a Stupid Question, Get a Stupid Answer: The Spam
I often get spam on my JABB accounts and sometime
those spam emails contain questions. So I
thought I'd spend this edition of "Ask a Stupid
Question" answering them.
Question: I am the deputy of
a king in a foreign county whose family member
has befallen some sort of evil political
plot. Will you wire me money to aide them?
Answer: Sure! It's always been my dream to
fall victim to a fraudulent scheme in the name of
some sort of royalty who likely does not
exist. I just gotta finish paying off that
new fleet of Hummers that I inexplicably bought
for Dyeland and then I'll get right on that, sir.
Also, can you wire me money? I'm writing on
behalf of the former president of a beautiful
realm known as Asteriana. He's recently
fallen victim to the devious plots of two
demons. And, sure, he's fine now but we need
fundage for a huge celebratory party. So can
I get some cash for that? Thanks muchly!
Question: Are you lonely
tonight? Click below to see photos of hot
Answer: Nope, not lonely. I'm being kept
amused by the now dozens of characters who I have
running around in my head... and mostly
Andrew. ::sigh:: Andrew...
Ahem. Sorry to read about the ladies'
discomfort. Perhaps you should purchase a
nice AC unit or fan for the ladies so they
wouldn't be so hot? I mean, sheesh, it is
summer after all.
Oh and... NOT clicking your link.
