Advice Adina: A Shushan Advice Column

Dear Advice Adina,

My daughter recently went to the king’s palace for the “Queen Contest.” After an entire year of getting ready, and over one million coins for the beauty potions and lotions, the obnoxious king covered his eyes and told my innocent daughter that she looked like an animal!!!

My poor daughter has been in her room for the last five months crying, and constantly says Achashverosh was just looking for the prettiest women, and not for someone kind, sweet or smart. I don’t know how to help her!

Dear Stressed Out,

I’ve seen many, many letters almost exactly like this for the last five months! My advice is to spend time with her, and take her mind off of what happened. Tell her how amazing and wonderful she is.

I hope this helps.

Dear Advice Adina,

A few months ago my rude, obnoxious son went to our kings party.

A few days into it, my 18-year-old son said “Hey big guy (the king), how would you feel if I started singing?” Normally the king loved when people sung to him so he allowed it even though my son called him big guy. So my son started singing a crazy song, and because he was drunk he was acting like a maniac. So my son sung his rude and crazy made up song: “big, big, big party, the king is drunk and crazy, crazy, crazy!”

Then he got thrown out of the castle and was banned, and on top of all that the king put up “WANTED” signs for him all over Persia,and we can’t leave our house! PLEASE HELP!!!

Dear Hopeless,

Wow! That is quite a story!

My advice would be to get the king a big and expensive gift to apologize for what your son did. But don’t just get him wine or something like that, get him something of gold, silver and diamonds wrapped in the best fabrics in the entire world, you must know how much the king likes that!

Send a messenger to deliver this stuff, write a long note about how sorry you are, and the king will forgive you for sure!

I hope this helps.
