You see, my nephew Wilmur has recently moved into the television room after returning to the country from his exploits overseas. Oh my yes, it is wonderful to have him here - he's such a delightful young man!
I'd love for you to meet him, but alas, he is not home. After a hearty dinner, he headed right out for a night on the town!
Oh of course I didn't go with him! It's important for adults to let their wards off their leashes now and again, isn't it? He is a good boy, though - he always calls up to me and tells his auntie goodbye.
I'm not really sure what he is up to, darling, but surely it is a sterling pursuit, as he has an eclectic yet discerning taste in culture.
Oh tosh, of course I am not worried about him losing all of his pocket money! He's always been frugal and never spends unwisely!
I do hope he's having fun. He's just started making friends here, and I am sure he will find many kindred spirits to bully about the town with.
He's a very steady sort, you see. Dependable and having lots of grace and control about himself.
I'm sure once you meet him, you'll see, darling: he's a very cool cat!
Sadly, the 'charity' behind the benefit this post was supporting, the Superhero Epilepsy Combat Syndicate, is a sham. The leader, Epileptic Dreddmor, raised an estimated $500 on behalf of the Epilepsy Foundation from benefits and direct donations over the course of several months. Unfortunately, no money ever made it to the Epilepsy Foundation. When pressed, she admitted this and later it was discovered all the money was gone and she had used it for her own interests.
Many generous people donated their time, items, and money in an attempt to help the Epilepsy Foundation. One person's selfish actions do not diminish the good intentions of those she took advantage of, and I applaud every one of the creators and kind people who tried to support what they believed was a worthy cause.
As for me, I learned a great lesson: never put efforts into something that isn't 100% transparent and honest. If something smells fishy, it is fishy.
I apologize for my association with the S.E.C.S. and urge everyone to be wary of the level of support they show this group and it's leader.
