Character of the Week: Ms. Fettleston!
Please let me introduce you to this week's Character of the Week, our Ms. Fettleston. Ms. Fettleston, please let us know more about you:
Thank you Ms. Mira. I am delighted to have an opportunity to chat with all of you young folk. As for me, really, I'm afraid I am not very interesting. But I was quite flattered when that sweet young Candy asked me to speak, and I shall do my best to answer any questions, dear.
I live alone, and I am older, as you know, dear. I have retired from my profession. I was a librarian, and I quite enjoyed my work. I do miss the bustle of the library at times. I was very proud of my section, and I was gratified to receive quite a few commendations from my supervisors. I keep those commendations on a shelf in my den, dear.
What else shall I tell you? I suppose, being young, you would like to know about love in my life. Well, I did have one rather special friend. He was a lively and handsome young man, always full of fun. So charming. Sadly, we argued over something really quite trivial. However, it seemed so important to us at the time! It was quite a bitter argument, and we did not speak for several months. By that time, my young man had found another. We did remain in touch, occasionally. He had three lovely young children, and I send them cards at Christmas.
My goodness, I'm afraid that I do feel a little sad thinking of this, my dear. However, it would be an unusual life that had no regrets, wouldn't it? And I do have many happy memories, as well.
I have been given many blessings, my dear. All things considered, I have had a long and happy life. I have had an opportunity to contribute my little share to the world. I have much to keep my busy: My knitting and hobbies, my garden, my volunteer work at the hospital, and of course, my activities in my Church. The Good Lord has given me many gifts, including such wonderful friends in my life. I am gratified to include you lovely people among them.
Now. Ms. Mira asked me to ask a question to start the discussion off. Well, really, I think that is more than enough about me. Perhaps you can tell me about all of you. I find being around such vibrant young folk to be quite invigorating. I would love to know what your plans are for your life, dears. Perhaps you could tell me all about them.
