“Give three words to describe your character?”
i dont know, may be lonely, quiet, kind…
“What are your favourite hobbies?” i like nature
and sun and rain, i love the simple pleasures :)
“What are your goals in life?” ponder the bible
and use my life to spread the word of god
“Explain why you are interested in marriage?”
I wish to find a strong and christian husband
with whom to go by hands for all my life
(establish me in the path of Your commandments)

How would you settle it?” i try to cook him

Dear Mr. Mathers, Thank you for your letter.
In my opinion, in your situation,
a criminal, not civil, claim is better
(plead for us, Lord, and grant us your salvation):
there’s no use going after what’s not there.
Regrettably these scams are everywhere.

To save you an unnecessary journey,
please print and sign this document in full
to give me general power of attorney
unlimited and irrevocable
attested by a public notary
and stamped with Hague Convention apostille.

When I receive the deed appointing me
I’ll do whatever lies within my power
to drag this woman through the courts. My fee
is 350 pounds an hour.
Please wire retainer, non-refundable.

And may the Lord have mercy on us all.
