From: Queen Abigail, Ruler of All That She Surveys
To: Her Friends, Followers and Supplicants
Greetings and Salutations,
Today We send you this missive from the safety of Our bunker in a top-secret, undisclosed location.
We are here to report some grievous and most disturbing news. It seems Our Queendom has been invaded by an intruder of shifty and nefarious character.
We believe that he possesses mystical powers because he seems to have brainwashed our staff. We have actually heard them refer to him as “adorable.” Adorable? Really? You call THIS adorable?
No, darlings, THIS is adorable…
To Our shock and dismay, even the canine members of Our court have succumbed to his spell.
We alone seem to be immune to his particular brand of black magic. We have ordered Our staff to remove him from Our castle at once but they reply, in a most condescending and untoadie-like manner, “Oh, Abby, you’ll get used to him. In fact, you’ll be good friends before you know it!” To which We hissingly retort…
And so We are reaching out to you, Our dear, dear friends in Blogville. What might one do to break the dark spell and return peace to Our land? How might We vanquish this most devilish of beasts?
Sincerely and Gratefully,
Queen Abigail, Ruler of All That She Surveys
Postscript: Until such time that this dastardly foe is defeated, might you be so kind as to send extra treats to Our safety bunker? We seem to be running low and We dare not venture far from Our refuge. Friskies are Our favorite. Simply address the package: Queen Abigail, Top Secret Bunker Location, Colorado, USA.
