The news caused a bit of a panic...we weren't terribly happy with her beaded hanging loop as it seemed to be a bit loose and stretchy and the beads were separating in a quite unacceptable manner...we all know how vain Dotees are, and how they have to have everything just so, especially when setting off to a new home. I had no option but to remove the (very well sewn in!) beaded cord and re-string them to ensure the tension was correct and the cord was not too loose this time.
Angelica does have a message...my word of the year "Peace", along with "2016" tattooed on her body, but as it is positioned on an area no self respecting Dotee would have photographed (they are VERY prudish), just take it as read that it is on a fairly broad area, in fact her derriere, and can be easily read by those who have the right permissions.
When everything was finished off according to Angelica's firmly expressed wishes, we had a final photoshoot in which Chris' arm was sorely tested. I was then allowed to finally secure her safely in her pearlised tissue traveling wrap bound with a length of eggshell seam binding, added her travelling documents to the postal box with her in case they are needed en route or when she arrives.
One thing a Dotee cannot stand is any confusion about anything. The thought of arriving at her new destination and her reception being less than she feels is appropriate to her status is so overwhelming for a Dotee that she would probably simply refuse to go in order to avoid any embarrassing scenes...it is best to prepare the recipient with sufficient information to ensure a happy introduction...ask me how I know!
