Dear Morticia,
I’m a motion picture producer from Hollywood and I’m really impressed by your profile.  Have you ever considered acting for a living?
Signed Steamy B. Demille

Dear Steamy,
While I’m dying to make your acquaintance, I’m a little uneasy about earning a living.  (What would I do with it?)

Dear Morticia,
I’ve just found out that the guy I’ve been dating is a real snake.  What should I do?
Signed, Livid

Dear Livid,
Belt him.  (Act fast: this relationship is bound to be constricting.)

Dear Morticia,
I just got an invitation to a ritzy wedding, and wouldn’t you know, I’m supposed to bring an escort.  What should I do?  I’m between men right now.
Signed, Forlorn

Dear For,
Bring both.  (I never mind being between men, honey.)

Dear Morticia,
I am a born again Christian and now have a totally different perception of the afterlife.  I urge you to give up your misguided ways and find the true meaning of life.
Signed, Second Chance

Dear Second,
No thanks.  I wanted to be born again, but Mom said No.

Confidential to Won’t Leave Me Alone in Wellington: I know it’s hard, but you just gotta be firm, honey.  I had the same problem with a very nice ghost once.  Finally, I had to tell him I just couldn’t see him.

Morticia will be back, unless someone pays her author a thousand bucks.


  1. It is funny! I love the 'in between men' and the Born again lines. I think you should just have fun in life when you can, great job!

  2. What would she do with earning a living? Too funny.
