Junk mail and want ads for angels

I’ve begun putting some of my Wittenburg Door pieces online over at my other website, since I have reprint rights. While I was going through my files, I found two that never went anywhere.

The first is a little bit of junk mail received by Saint Michael the Archangel.

The second is a group of want-ads that I never finished, and since the Door is now on indefinite hiatus, never will be since no one else prints their gonzo-type humor (which was, alas, perfect for me.) So I’ll put a few of the sillier ones below, and if you want to post your own want ads, go ahead and do it in the comment box.

Have fun!

    I’ve been reading here for a while, but I don’t think I’ve posted yet. These ads made me laugh out loud. Don’t have any of my own (my brain is not wired to create this type of stuff, only to appreciate it), but I will check back later to see what others come up with.

        It’s nice to be here. I had been enjoying your writing and insight over at EHell for a few years, and followed you here. Between your musings on faith and those on motherhood, I find we have much in common. I won’t ever be a fiction writer, but I do read voraciously (well, in between diaper changes, preschool games, bus stop runs, and homework), and finding out more about the writing process is fascinating.
