Joke of a ten year “Bea Wyett” Fan. The group call themselves “BEES”

I didn’t know what to make of this joke when a young fan of “Bea Wyett” who asked me the question? “What does a mental institution and social network have in common?

I was curious but didn’t have a clue. Mischief danced in her blue eyes and sweet little face as she watched me ponder what might the answer be?

Her mother was horrified she had the audacity to say the answer out aloud. I told her mom that was alright. I wasn’t easy shocked by things coming out of children’ mouths.

When I laughed I wasn’t making fun of anyone in a real, physical mental institution and neither was the child. I didn’t chasten her for it wasn’t my place and I saw no real menace in her face. To her it was simply a joke.

I understood it after she explained the joke. The child could relate to Bea’s school dilemma saying she encountered the same things.

I asked why did she and her friends called themselves “BEES”? They explained, “They aren’t mean and nasty girls like the girls picking on Bea but they know girls like the girls in the book. But if anyone mess with one of them then they sting like a bee.”

After talking to the group of 9, 10, 11 and a few 12 year olds I got a better understanding of what school is like nowadays.

I realized by these girls could relate so well to Bea Wyett’s situation that sometimes, we as adults and our covet oversensitiveness about every thing keeps children from explaining what’s going on with them. They may tell it in a joke but it’s our job as adults to see through what they maybe actually saying.Ā 

Below is the book that was being discussed at the time.

The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    I have heard this one before. It’s a popular preteen, tween joke kids exchange about the how the internet has become since the bots took over saying it’s hard to talk to a live person.

    Only someone needing stick removal surgery would think that’s what those kid were talking about.

    I’m glad you listened to them rather than took the stern adult approach and did try to not let them be children. Bea was relatable to them. Who knows? You probably prevented a school shooting or someone getting hurt by listening to them and their story.

    Congratulations! Bea has her own fan club. šŸ˜„šŸ˜˜šŸ˜šŸ˜

    Its true. The original internet is gone. The one where you could met people who shared your interest. Now its nothing but a bunch of psychos looking for their next victim. The early indie authors and small press authors wasn’t browbeaten into kissing readers’ behinds the way authors are today. It was much more fun back then than now. Most readers aren’t paying for anything so why are they given such high esteem. All they do is gather and bad mouth authors. My grandmother used to say when you pay for something that’s when have the right to complain:-) I known that’s an off subject comment but I hate seeing the intellectual bowing to the idiosyncratic with no recourse!

    • Yes Flo, I agree the internet is different than it was in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Although, I wasn’t online back in the big heyday of Indie, small press publishing, Nook and Kindle but I heard it was different than today. I heard it was easier to make a profit selling books. When I returned it was a different cyber world than the one I left. Authors
      have a recourse. They can always take their work to the public. I don’t know why so many believe otherwise.
