Q: Write a letter to your favorite character. Rant, rave or gush…just pretend like they are real and you just want to let them know a "few things". - Activity courtesy of author, Kelly Walker

Okay, so I'm not writing to my favorite character, but to a character that annoys me, Echo's dad from Pushing The Limits.

Dear Mr. Emerson,
You are scum. I cannot believe you would marry your child's babysitter. And while I get that sometimes "life just happens" and your wife was crazy, while you might not choose who you care about, you choose how you act on it. If I were going to excuse this inappropriate behavior because your wife refused to take her medication, the way you side with your nanny mistress over your daughter is unforgivable. And really what you did--even thought you didn't plan for her to be hurt--was pretty bad. And wow! Letting her give that baby your dead son's name after that comment "now you'll have a brother again" is just way too much! In short, you suck. You should be happy your daughter is a suck up aiming to be a people pleaser. I'd put you on call block. ;)


  1. Whoa, Mr. Emerson is clearly not your favorite person. I could forgive a father who got together with my former babysitter, but I would have a much more difficult time forgiving a dad who didn't really take care of me like Mr. Emerson did to Echo.

    I am so glad that he wasn't my father, though.

    1. Maybe, if he wasn't married to her mom when they got togehter. But I think what annoys me more is that he always sided w/ the Mrs. Nanny over hsi daughter. I hated she apologized. I thought the parents should!
      But wow, I enjoyed writing this letter looking forward to reading yours.

  2. Hahaha yeah you definitely gave this character a piece of your mind. :-)

  3. Go you, writing a letter to speak your mind! Hmmm...there are a few characters I'd like to do that to. LOL
