Pag« Twelv* — Blytheville (Ark.) Courier News - Tuesday, November T, 198T by Abigail Van Buren 'Preacher's Kid' Proud of Dad DEAR ABBY: I read a letter in your column signed "P. K." which means "Preacher's Kid," and it sure made me mad. She said she didn't want to tell people that she was a preacher's kid because she didn't want to be treated any different. As a matter of fact, she sounded like she was ashamed. Well, I have news for her, Abby, whether she likes it or not se is "branded," so to speak. But she has the wrong idea. If she knew what a privilege it is to be a preacher's kid, she would be tiling everyone about it, instead of hiding it. Abby, I know what it's like to be a preacher's kid because I am one, and I never felt that people treated m any diffrent because of it, and I've always had plenty of friends. Maybe this girl's problem is not with her daddy, but with herself. I've got the best daddy in the world, and I thank God that he's a preacher. I wouldn't want him to be anything else. PROUD P. K. DEAR ABBY: This is for the "P. K." who said that as soon as kids found out she was a preacher's kid, they didn't want her for a friend: but I know a few, and I think I know their problem. They are so worried that people will think they are "goody goodies" that they go to extremes to act just the opposite, and turn out to be the wildest, pushiest kids around. (Especially the girls.) Preacher's kids should just act normal. Most kids don't care what another kid's father does anyway. KNOWS SOME DEAR ABBY: I have a very serious problem and you are the only person I can ask for help. I think I have a veneral disease, and don't know what to do about it. I noticed it about 3 months ago, but wasn't sure what it was. I'm still not sure, but I know that something is wrong. I can't go to our family doctor because I am too ashamed and embarrassed. Besides, I'm afraid he will tell my parents. I don't know where to turn, Abby but I know I have to do something about this for my own good. Any help you can give me in your column will be very much appreciated. Thank you.

It makes me sad to see a man who not only wears a toupee but also has an artificial flowei pinned in his lapel. You have to give him credit for hope, but you can't escape the conviction he's a bit out of touch with reality.
