Devotional: Opposite Day

November 6th, 2010

After you’ve heard “Opposite Day,” check out this devotional thought. (If you haven’t heard the episode, check out the Media Player. You can also find a station in your area.)

Best of Friends

Best of Friends

By Bethany Brown

In the third grade, I was really shy. We had just moved to a new town and I was a nervous around all the kids in my new school. I liked to read, write stories, and play with my stuffed animals, instead of talking to other kids. However, the girl who sat in front of me was completely different. She was funny, happy, one of the most popular girls in class, and she had no problem being loud and leading the whole group in doing something fun.

The two of us could not have been more different, but she was my best friend through elementary school. She stood up for me when bullies tried to tease me, and when she would get a big group of kids to play “Let’s Pretend,” I was often the one who helped come up with a story for us to imagine.

Proverbs 4:9-10 says “two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: if one falls down, his friend can help him up.” My friend and I needed each other’s help. I already knew how to be quiet, and she already knew how to be loud, but together we helped each other do the things at which we were weakest.

It would have been really easy, on my first day of school, for me to be like Olivia in “Opposite Day” and think only about the differences of the girl in front of me: “she’s too loud and popular, we’ll never get along” and she could have said the same about me. “She’s so quiet and shy, she doesn’t have anything to say.” We might have missed learning so much from each other because we weren’t willing to try something new.

Instead, I really like what Olivia and Amber decided. They could still be friends, even though they knew they had a lot of differences. They wouldn’t be best friends, but they could still spend time together.

Have you ever had a friend who was really different from you? Did you stay friends? What did you learn? Tell us all about it in the comments below.

  • wakingup2010 on November 6th, 2010 - 8:39am


    I liked this one better than the others I have heard from albums 51 and 52. There weren’t any corny jokes, and the characters were genuine enough to be enjoyable. The message was also delivered much better.

  • Sharon b on November 6th, 2010 - 8:39am


    This is my favorite new episode so far!

  • israel on November 6th, 2010 - 9:29am


    I know just how you feel. I moved almost two years ago and I still don’t have any friends but the one that was my next door neighbor at the old house. We are totaly oposites but we are the worlds best friends. We read the bible and grow in our faith together. I hope we are together for a long time.

    the opposite of opposite day is the opposite so its not opposite day

  • Mary on November 6th, 2010 - 11:23am


    The devotional is really good.

  • Wooten rocks on November 6th, 2010 - 11:57am


    opposite day was great i really liked it and it felt a little like a old show with new characters.Olivia sounded great and I’m wondering about the mail man spirit week. i really liked Wootens little side appearances too. thanks guys for another great show!:)

  • donny on November 6th, 2010 - 1:47pm


    I listened to this episode, and barret`s voice sounds
    funny. I think he`s played by a different kid p.s. does
    anyone know how to download episodes? I heard on a commercial that you can do that.

    How can I get the different pages with past odysseys? All
    of a sudden today when we came to listen it just shows the
    front page. what happened?

  • Sidra on November 7th, 2010 - 2:20pm


    That happened to me in first grade. We just move to a place in Europe which we lived in till now and although we had a little in common we were quite different. But then we became really good friends.

    am i the first comment? anyways i loved this podcast

  • Anonymous on November 8th, 2010 - 7:12am


    Barrets new voice just sounds too much like Jared DeWhite. I really liked his old (younger) voice. It kind of sounds as if he aged 5 years in just 2 episodes.

    thank you it encourged me alot.

    Opposite Day Review Part 1

    Well, we are now officially half way through the odyssey season. I have liked every single episode so far quite a bit, but i have to say i didn’t opposite day. It wasn’t very exciting, the script went on kind of sluggishly, and it was just kind of boring. What happened to barret’s voice? It’s only his 4th episode, and his voice has already changed. I fear he won’t last long, as Odyssey always gets rid of characters after their voices have changed…

  • Odysseyfan#1 on November 8th, 2010 - 9:23am


    Opposite Day Review Part 2

    Maybe it’s good though. Another thing, I did notice that olivia parker has REALLY improved her kid voice. In album 51, she sounded way too much like an adult, but she is getting much better. Good job, Hope Levy! I didn’t much like Amber in this episode, and I hope she doesn’t come back. what was with her laugh? It gave me shudders. I am very sorry to be so ceitical in this review, and i’m really not that muchof a…

    Opposite Day Review Part 3

    Critical person. I just didn’t think this episode lived up to adventures in odyssey standards. If you are new to odyssey and have only heard this episode for album 52, don’t worry. this is the worst one on the album in my opinion. I am sorry Odyssey, to criticize you, and Mrs. Buchanan, I’m sorry to criticize your writing. I just didn’t think this one was as good as other stellar scripts in this season.

  • Odysseyfan#1 on November 8th, 2010 - 9:27am


    Opposite Day Review Part 4


    Thought “Club Kid Chat” was a good name.

    Wooton’s “Spirit Week”

    The name “Desirae Greenwich”

    the four comments barret got on his post about feeling down.


    Not very exciting

    SLow Pace

    Amber’s laugh

    Next Week: “The Owlnapping”, A decent episode.

  • Odyssey Whiz on November 8th, 2010 - 2:46pm


    I had a friend like that to! I am pretty queit and shy but my friend is nice but outgoing. She was one of the first people to talk me and listen to me in about five years! I love the friends God gives me.

  • CGC on November 8th, 2010 - 3:24pm


    Yah,know how you feel I have a close friend who has a lot of differences and a lot of people cant stand but we get along very well. 🙂

  • An A.I.O fan on November 8th, 2010 - 4:23pm


    I thought ”Opposite Day” was really well done.I can’t agree with ”ODYSSEYFAN#1”.There was lots of humor.Proof:My brother laughed so hard at one of the scenes,he choked on his water.
    And it’s not true that Odyssey gets rid of all there characters after their voices change.The ”Adventures in Odyssey the Officail Guide” will back me up on that.You really should read it.
    To the Odyssey team:KUTGW!It would be impossible to satisfy EVERY Odyssey listener.
    P.S.Love album 52 and the Parkers!

  • Noelle on November 8th, 2010 - 6:02pm


    I love this. Me and my mom love AIO. LOL

  • Abbie on November 8th, 2010 - 7:57pm


    I met my best friend two years ago at a camp. We were and still are different. For example, she is pretty popular wherever she goes, it seems. And, she goes to public school and i don’t (i’m homeschooled), which is a pretty big difference. There’s a few other differnces, but I won’t name them all. But we both are christians, and have grown in our faith. Also, we are VERY big Odyssey fans 🙂 But she is one of the best friends I can ever have! 🙂

  • superman on November 9th, 2010 - 11:20am


    I have to admit, it was a little boring but decent enough. Amber’s laugh was pretty weird. In the overall picture, I like this album and Ithink it’s going to play out very well. Keep up the good work ADVENTURES IN ODYSSY! 🙂

  • superman on November 9th, 2010 - 11:37am


    Hey Donny, about that downloading stuff: When you get to the front page of http://www.whitsend.org, under where it says today’s show, there will be the names of coming up episodes, click on one of those. If that does not work, I do not Know waht’s wrong. Glad if I could help.

    By the way, thank you sooo much for starting to play the Thin on Ice album, I think its one my favorite albums!!

  • Odysseyfan#1 on November 10th, 2010 - 9:30am


    AN A.I.O FAN,

    Sorry, but i have to disagree with you… I just really thought this episode was dry, and slow-paced. I’d like to know what scene it was that your brother laughed at and choked on his water… Let me know, and i’ll go relisten to it while drinking water. Also, I’ve read the AIO Official guide 2 times cover-to-cover. I’m not saying that they get rid of characters right away, but they do have to eventually. Look at Marvin Washington or Jimmy Barclay. They stayed on for…

  • Odysseyfan#1 on November 10th, 2010 - 9:34am


    … A while longer after their voices changed, but they had to get rid of them eventually. Trent only lasted 4 episodes after his voice changed. we haven’t seen Monty Whittaker because his voice changed. They phased Jared out because his voice changed and he sounded older. Yes, they may keep Barret on for 4 more albums, but, I’m just saying, they can’t keep him on forever… Please write me back… I’d like to know your opinion.


  • meme on November 10th, 2010 - 10:19am


    yey,i can really learn a lesson from that!

  • Joshua on November 10th, 2010 - 2:56pm


    Dear Odyssey Team,
    Album 52, “Cause and Effect”, is much better than Album 51. I was one of those people complaining that Album 51 did not have much if any spiritual stuff in it, but Album 52 is different I feel like I could give it to a new Christian. So I just thought I’d let you know that I think you are doing a very good job now. Keep up the good work. 🙂

  • Selena on November 10th, 2010 - 7:10pm


    Hey guys, my best friend and I met in fourth grade, it well its hard to talk about her. She was funny, smart, and outgoing,and athletic the kind of girl that everyone wanted to hang out with. I on the other hand, am shy, quiet, a real bookworm, and well we were like day and night. She helped introduce me to other people, we became best friends and stayed best friends until the eighth grade. That was when she moved, and I’m not talking about moving to the other side of the city, but she moved to

  • Selena on November 10th, 2010 - 7:13pm


    well, a place that she has always wanted to go to but, well I miss her a bunch. I need your prayers, for her and for me, its really hard to think about her without crying. This episode really inspired me though, I talked with a girl named Darcy today, she usually sits alone, I think that my best friend’s outgoingness rubbed off on me. Wish me luck as I try to build this friendship on a strong foundation! I hope Darcy will love this episode when I have her listen to it, maybe it will lead her to

  • Selena on November 10th, 2010 - 7:16pm


    the Lord, pray for her, pray for me, and pray for my friend, and I hope that she is having an awesome time in her dream place, though I miss her terribly. I will continue to walk in the way of the Lord, leaning on him who gives me stregth, for I can soar on the wings of eagles and I shall not fear!

  • Odyssyfan#2 on November 10th, 2010 - 8:21pm


    I have a friend,Henry, who is still not a christian, but i do what I can to lead him there. When we first met, we really wren’t like eachother, He liked being loud and cool while I was sort of on the quiet side. But we get along well now and hang often. i’m really glad God brought henty int my life. I agree with Joshoua in saying that Album 51 deafanantly wasn’t as good as Album 52 is right now. Like Joshua said,” keep up the good work.

    Hey, ODYSSEYFAN#1, I’m impressed the way so honest about the shows but I think you could be a bit nicer. 😉

  • wakingup2010 on November 11th, 2010 - 5:58pm



    We seem to agree that this episode was not up to par with what AIO has done in the past (the Novacom Saga comes to mind), but I think this one was an improvement over the others I have heard from albums 51 and 52. What do you think?

  • Odysseyfan on November 11th, 2010 - 7:31pm


    I think this is one of AIO’s vol 52 episodes that is good. i don’t really like the newer episodes, but it still teaches a good lesson. I want to know something, what year is it in Odyssey? i would like an answer ASAP keep up the good work AIO!

  • Michelle on November 11th, 2010 - 7:35pm


    I really like this post! (:
    I have a friend who was really pretty loud and popular, and i was new and i didn’t know anyone and kind of quiet.
    At first it was really awkward when we had sat at the same table, but then i grew to enjoy her and she was really a lot of fun.
    She was the one who gave advice, and i was the one with the imagination.
    Together we were nothing alike, but i taught her how to play spies, and she gave
    me some advice.
    We have our ups and downs but we sort them out

  • anna on November 11th, 2010 - 7:45pm


    That was an awesome episode and devotional! I have a story kind of like this episode: I was in 4-H when I was 6 and a shy girl caught my eye. I am on the hiper, talkative side, so it was a surprise that we became best friends until she started going to school in a different town. I am glad you made this episode and I can’t wait until Album 53! 🙂

  • Lecrae fan on November 13th, 2010 - 6:20pm


    No offense, but to be honest, I don’t think Odyssey is doing very well anymore. I’ve always loved AIO, but they have taken a turn for the worse. They’re more childish, and they aren’t as good. I’m quite disappointed in the new albums, and I hope Odyssey takes a turn for the better. I understand that they are probably trying “to appeal” to the non-Christian crowd, and I’m glad, but there isn’t enough Bible stuff included.

    Wooton’s Spirit Week is funny

  • hannah on November 13th, 2010 - 7:24pm


    My best friend and I have been friends since we were born, I’m not kidding. I’m really shy, but she’s really outgoing. It’sad, though; she lives in another state and I don’t see her a lot. About friends who are different; it’s funny, most of my friends are outgoing, and they really help me not to be as shy.

  • Joyy on November 13th, 2010 - 8:36pm


    I think the reason why the new Whit seems different to me is because his voice doesn’t seem as grandfatherly as the others.

  • Barbie on November 13th, 2010 - 9:32pm


    Today’s episode, Owl napping, was really good! I personally loved it! I liked the basketball team and I liked how it was based on basketball and just everything about it made me feel the sweet aroma of Odyssey~ 😀

  • Allen on November 13th, 2010 - 10:18pm


    I definitely agree that this wasn’t one of the best episodes of album 52. My favorite part is probably Wooton and mailman spirit week. And about album 51. Why does everyone keep saying it’s not that good. Some of them are really good! Most notably The Jubilee Singers. Besides, it’s the first album after a hiatus. Think about album 26, Back on the Air.

  • E on November 15th, 2010 - 1:00pm


    Good work Bethany! I’m looking forward for a new podcast to come out!

  • Meisha on November 15th, 2010 - 6:28pm


    I think this was great just like all the odyssey episodes. I also think that all th people that say odyssey is getting too childish first they need to look at the target ages of odyssey and then they need to see if odyssey seems younger because they have grown up. i’m 17 and think odyssey is great as long as i remember that I’m 17 and odyssey is targeted towards younger children. =)

  • Odysseyfan#1 on November 16th, 2010 - 11:53am


    @Odysseyfan#2, I’m sorry, I don’t mean to be rude, and i’m sorry if that’s the way it come off. It just was my honest opinion, and I just thought I’d let AIO know how i felt.

    @Wakingup2010, Yes, I agree that 51 & 52 haven’t been better as previous episodes, but I actually didn’t like opposite day as much as others on this album. I think if I had to put the 12 episodes on album 52 in order it would go like this:

    (Continued in next post)

  • Odysseyfan#1 on November 16th, 2010 - 11:57am


    1. (favorite) Wooton’s Broken Pencil Show
    2. A Thankstaking Story
    3. Mystery of the Clocktower Part 1
    4. Mystery of the Clocktower part 2
    5. Square One
    6. The Malted Milkball Falcon
    7. Fast as I Can
    8. Stage Fright
    9. Grandma’s Christmas Visit
    10. The Owlnapping
    11. An Agreeable Nanny
    12. (Least favorite) Opposite Day

    But that’s just my opinion.

    To tell you the truth… Owlnapping didn’t make much sense. The entire running around Odyssey, didn’t teach me much…. I think my fav episode would have to be….. hmm….hmmmmm….. Wotoon’s Broken Pencil Show. lol

    PS the thing i did like about the owlnapping was when the coach said- “Be the scoreboard as you throw yourself thru yourself!”

  • an a.i.o.fan on November 18th, 2010 - 7:37pm


    To Odysseyfan#1:I do agree with you,Odyssey does ”get rid of”( if you want to call it that)a lot of their characters.But do you know that they’ll never have Jared or Jimmy back again?Oh,and I’m not sure what scene it was that my brother laughed at but don’t you think it’s at least a teeny bit funny that Olivia mistook asphalt for volcano rock,or that she asked Amber if there would be bugs at a bug museum,or any of the the stuff that happened at drama club,or perhaps the the comment Olivia…..

  • an a.i.o.fan on November 18th, 2010 - 7:52pm


    made about headlice.I found it peticularly funny that Barret considered those 523 people his friends.Just little comments characters make and have you laughing for a whole minute.Me that is.Obviously,I stand alone on that,though.I can’t remember anything eles,since I don’t actually own it,I only listen to it on the radio.
    What do you mean by slow paced?
    Oh and I wouldn’t advise you to try choking on water.It makes a big mess.On the floor and on any one eles around you…

  • Stevie on November 20th, 2010 - 10:29am


    Hey I think that we all should try a little expirement talk to someone on Whit’s end Blog that seems not to be getting attention in their posts, even if they are good. We always look at Odysseyfan#1 and never at the smaller people like Selena. My project is to talk to Selena. Is that okay Selena, let me know if it’s not. I read your comment Selena and I completely understand. I challenge all you well known people and regulars, I want you to talk to people who need comments.okay?

    the same thing thta heppend her happend to me. my homeschooling grooge had a meeting about 4 yr’s ago, agirl named courtney and me became friends because we liked american girl doll’s.She was very shy(i am shy, but she was super shy)she was a only child, i was the oldest of three,i was noisey,she was quiet,i was the most popular kid in the homschooling groop, and i was atleast 85 pounds and she was like 40, and i was super tall she is still the shortest girl i know my age.

  • ftu on November 20th, 2010 - 8:14pm


    Opposite day was rather boring, and Amber’s laugh makes me shudder too. I so rather prefer The Owlnapping or Square One instead of this one. Though, come to think of it, I’d probably mistake asphalt for volcanic rock too, if there were any volcanoes around here.

  • Aio listener on November 22nd, 2010 - 11:47am


    Don’t know why everyone thinks this episode was so horrible. “Not Bible-based enough”,”boring, not exciting”.Well, what do you want, then? Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE action. I’m an action person. If there’s not any action, I’m not totally thrilled. But I also love humor, and that’s what opposite day had. And I personally don’t like many of the old episodes. I’m not a fan of anything old, including movies, houses, and clothes.That’s just me, though. Some old episodes are good.

    Hi Selena I feel the same way no one talks to me and I really want someone to I hope i’m not to late and that you’ll talk to me.

    I think Odyssey is great. I miss all the old characters, though.

  • marin on November 24th, 2010 - 8:46pm


    Stevie, I agree with you. If anyone on here who wants to talk to a AIO, Narnia, and LOR fan, I’m here, with plenty of time to spend on my PC. It’s especially the people, who, like Stevie said, never get answers to their posts, that I’m interested in talking to. Ask me any question about AIO, Narnia, and LOR, and I will answer to the best of my ability. BTW, I do look at ODYSSEYFAN#1’s posts, especially the Pros and Cons section. Keep it up, ODYSSEYFAN#1!! 😉 I appreciate it!!:) 🙂

  • Selena on November 24th, 2010 - 11:17pm


    Hadasah(s.p?) Stevie, what you guys said really touched me! Thanks a bunch. I would love to talk to you guys. I’m in ninth grade, love the color purple, love to act, my favorite books are Percy Jackson, Narnia, Dragons in our Misit(s.p?) Oracles of Fire and more, I also am an avid athlet(s.P?) I would like to get to know you guys. Thanks for writing, and its not to late. Thanks a bunch and I hope to get to know you more.
    Selena who is overjoyed! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 :

    There was a new girl at my school who became friends with my best friend. Whenever there together I felt left out,so I did not like her. One day when my friend was sick I got to spend time with the new girl.She turned out to be a really nice girl I just had to give her a chance.

  • Aio listener on November 26th, 2010 - 12:01pm


    By the way, ftu, I think Amber’s laugh was hilarious.
    and, is your name suggesting that I should fear the unknown?Or that YOU fear the unknown?Cuz you shouldn’t if you’re a child of God.

  • ftu on November 26th, 2010 - 7:52pm


    How come my comments never get posted? Either there’s something dreadfully wrong with my computer, or something dreadfully wrong with the AIO site. My guess is the site. The “Listen Online” thing for the episodes is going wacko, too.
    Hey, Selena, I know how you feel. Not many people pay attention to what I say, too. If you’re a Narnia fan, some of us(including Stevie) are talking about Narnia on the last video podcast. If not a Narnia fan, we can talk about something else.

  • Brittini on November 26th, 2010 - 8:51pm

  • Odysseyfan#1 on November 28th, 2010 - 7:26pm


    Okay… I don’t know. I don’t laugh that easily i guess… I don’t know. I just thought the episode was very slow, and not enough happened. Maybe i just got used to the other 5 mysteries on 1 album… I don’t know.

    Don’t worry if you liked it and no one else did. I liked wooton’s broken pencil show a lot, and no one seemed to like it… 🙁

    Sorry if i came off curt or rude to you in my post above. I didn’t mean anything by it!

    Selena, I read your posts all the time!Yes, believe it or not! I read everyone’s posts but do not usually read the names.So sorry. I think why no one talks to you is not because you’re not as well known as odysseyfan#1, it is because people usually are intrigued by things this guy(or girl) says. They wanna stand up to him or answer his questions.Or…the have a question that he will probably know the answer to. D’ya get me?
    I’ll talk to you if you want.Do you have any questions?I’ll do my…

  • ftu on November 30th, 2010 - 9:48pm


    TO AIO LISTENER: Everyone has their own tastes. If you like Amber’s laugh, that’s great. God made everyone different. And I laugh like that sometimes unintentionally. I don’t want people to fear the unknown, I just thought it was a cool name, and it’ll keep my brother from figuring out who I am. It comes from a dream I had once about “no fear is greater than the fear of the unknown.” I think I had digestion problems that night or something. No, I don’t fear the unknown. First of all, I know God watches over me and keeps me safe from all danger, known and unknown. He is my rock and fortress; my God: in him will I trust. And secondly, how could I fear something unknown? I mean, if it’s unknown, why would I fear it? I don’t even know it exists! 🙂 I hope I haven’t spooked anyone out, though. If the name bothers you, AIO LISTENER, I shan’t use it.

  • Hannah K. on December 2nd, 2010 - 8:18am


    HI Selena! I just want you to know that I read your comments, and I think what you write is great! I’m so sorry about your best friend moving away. I will pray that the Lord will give you new friends! And I think its great that you’re going to try to be friends with Darcy! 🙂
    I’m 13, and the oldest of 6 children. How about you?
    By the way, I really like the color purple too! 🙂

  • ewe 122 on December 3rd, 2010 - 3:32pm


    SELENA: i will talk to you if you want. I love Narnia and if you have any questions on it i would love to answer them. i would like to see the Voyage of the Dawn Treader more then once when it comes out. i enjoy listening to aio. i love singing dancing and acting, i also enjoy swimming and Disney World. I am 14 and know what its like to be or feel egnord. will try to be on these posts more often so we can chat. Rachel (EWE 122)

  • gotta on December 3rd, 2010 - 5:50pm


    hey everybody… =)

    OdysseyFan#1~ i know, Amber’s laugh was the most annoying thing… it sounded soo fake!

    and i TOTALLY agree with FTU. it was boring.

    one more thing, what’s with Barrett’s voice? in Stage Fright, he sounded like a 10 year old, and in this show, he sounds like he jumped to 14! now that’s a little drastic, don’t you think? this is def. not one of my fav shows. does anyone else agree about (Barret), lemme know! =)

    i def. liked Owlnapping & Square One better <333

  • gotta on December 3rd, 2010 - 5:52pm

  • loryn on December 3rd, 2010 - 10:06pm


    Selena: i also want to say that i am so sorry for your loss and i will be praying for you!

  • aio listener on December 4th, 2010 - 1:46pm


    FEAR THE UNKNOWN,thanks for answering my question. Your name just sounded kinda weird at first. By the way, do you think that you’ll ALWAYS be protected from danger since you’re saved? I don’t know, maybe I read you wrong.
    Oh, and there is such a thing as fearing the unknown. In fact, I know that YOU have feared the unknown too… more times than you probably know! Have you ever worried about a test you had to take the next day at school? I know I have, though I am homeschooled. Worrying…

  • aio listener on December 4th, 2010 - 2:02pm


    about the future IS fearing the unknown, believe it or not! It can also mean being afraid of dying, you know, where you’ll go after death. That’s what I originally meant by asking you about your name.I guess it’s ok, though.

  • aio listener on December 4th, 2010 - 2:08pm


    And yes, I did like Amber’s laugh cause it was so fake. Don’t worry, my older sister was creeped out by her laugh too. You’re right, we all have different tastes.
    Oh, and who is you’re brother? Does he post comments on this site?
    And I STILL haven’t figured out if you’re a him or a her. I can usually depict that by the style of writing, but using the word “shan’t”? Wow.

  • Selena on December 6th, 2010 - 5:11pm


    Thank you so much guys I am so happy 😀 Tell me about yourselves please? 😀 Thank you so much if I havent already said that! 😛

  • HUGE FAN on December 7th, 2010 - 4:38pm


    Opposite Day is great , by the way I just love the kittens my favorite animal is cats and kittens.

  • FTu on December 10th, 2010 - 9:19pm


    AIO LISTENER: I try to pick unique names. Just me. I think, and this is just me, that I won’t be protected from EVERY danger. Some things God allows us to experience in order to strengthen our faith. I’m not to worried about taking tests in school, BECAUSE I’m homeschooled! The future doesn’t bother me; God is in control, and I trust in Him to watch over everything. That’s one of the things about being a Christian: you’re not s’posed to worry about the future, or anything for that matter. Everything is watched over by God(He made it happen, after all).
    Yeah, my brother gets on here now and then to look at what I post. See if you can figure out his name: it’s about what happens in the morning before you get out of bed, and has the year 2010 in the name. He mainly posts on https://www.whitsendblog.org/2010/10/new-video-podcast-radio-theatre-is-back-on-the-air-go-behind-the-scenes-with-the-creators-plus-previews-of-the-imagination-station-book-series-album-52-and-more/. I post there too. If you read some of the comments there, you may be able to figure out whether I’m a girl or boy. I sign most of my comments there with the initials L.E. These comments are mostly about Narnia and Lord of the Rings. I listen to much to the Radio Theater Chronicles of Narnia series, making me speak with a British accent, hence the fact I use the word “shan’t.” Hahaha 🙂 BTW, are you a boy or a girl? I’m guessing a girl, but I’ve been wrong before.

  • CARISSA on December 13th, 2010 - 1:44pm


    I just skimmed the comments on this page….guys no offense but stop being so critical!!! :/
    I thought Oppposite Day was a good, had a great moral, and a clever story.
    One thing I have to agree with everyone is: WHAT IS WITH AMBER’S LAUGH???? My brother and I though that it’s so weird…but kind of cool…adds flavor to the episode if you know what i mean…lol…:)

  • Stevie on December 14th, 2010 - 4:59pm


    Go Carissa totally agree!!! OH FTU how did you get that long of a post that is not 500 characters! Really want to know!!!!
    Cool name FTU!

  • Selena on December 14th, 2010 - 5:06pm


    Thanks a bunch everyone! I read some of your posts. I cried. Thanks! Tell me about yourselves. Thanks a bunch for you prayers Loryn, I’m sure Emmie’s having a great time in Greece, she wrote me a letter a few days ago, well actually a long time ago but it just came on Friday. Tell me about yourself you to Ewe 122 I’ll join you guys, BIG narnia fan! You too hannah, I’m the third oldest of ten! Brittni Sarah and Kathrine and A.I.O Listner. Actually Karen really helps me I love that episode!

  • ftu on December 20th, 2010 - 5:10pm


    Hi Stevie! Well, I’ll let you in on a little secret. I found out that by writing out what you want to say on Sticky Notes or OpenOffice, you can copy and paste it to the little Post-A-Comment box. It works like a charm! Now I can post reeaallllly looonnngg comments this way! Just be sure you don’t try to correct your spelling or adjust your comment. It will shoot you back down to 500 characters, and chop off whatever of your comment exceeds the limit.

    Please tell me people what does <3 or something like that mean. Tell me dudes. Was Whit the secret friend in a class Act? Thanks if you will tell me.
    Thank you FTU! The sticky notes really help, I have a lot of long posts.

  • maygirl on January 11th, 2011 - 7:40pm


    I didn’t like this episode very much.

    By the way Bluegirl odyssey isn’t in California.

  • ftu on January 13th, 2011 - 7:43pm


    You’re welcome, Stevie. When you type “<3" when instant messaging and things of that sort, it shows up as a heart. So, I guess it means "love," as in "I <3 AIO." Whit wasn't the secret friend, it was Shannon's dad.

  • Stevie on January 19th, 2011 - 4:20pm


    Okay Fear the Unknow I was just confused it always confuses me just with some of the diolouge. I wonder why our society is always caught up in instant messaging it just seems like really dumb. Imagine if we all started talking like that. That would be creepy.

  • Ivy on January 19th, 2011 - 7:57pm


    Selena, I love that series, too! I got all four books for christmas.

    Also I would like to say that my best friend is TOTALLY different from me. When we first met, (7 years ago to be precise), she was more hyper and loud and I was more quiet. About two years ago, we switched! Now I’m more hiper and she’s more relaxed.

  • ftu on January 22nd, 2011 - 1:04pm


    That’s an interesting idea, Stevie. I never really thought about it like that before. I suppose you don’t instant message? Or text? And I have started saying LOL and IDK sometimes when I’m not thinking. It is creepy.

  • Stevie on January 24th, 2011 - 11:17pm


    FTU, I DO NOT text, I do NOT instant message, I Do NOT have a email, or EVEN a phone! 😀 Why do you need one? Me and my four sisters and two older bothers oops sorry brothers share a phone just in case! 😀

  • ftu on February 1st, 2011 - 9:28am


    You don’t have email? Wow, I can’t imagine how I’d contact my friends without email, since I detest talking on the phone. I IM all the time, sometimes with my brothers and sisters even when I’m sitting next to them! I know, I’m weird, but I communicate better through writing than face-to-face.

    You’ll prob’ly never read this since the post is so old, but in case you do…yes, I think I have u figured out, LADY ELYON(excuse the spelling). So you’re a girl.That’s cool.And your bro is wakingup2010. My first guess when I read your clue to his name was “press the snooze button on the alarm clock”? Has your bro changed his name yet, since 2010 is now over? Oh, sorry if I sounded rude when asking about your name. FTU’s ok, I guess. And, no, it’s not just you who thinks that God allows…

  • Aio LISTENER on February 15th, 2011 - 1:01pm


    us believers to go thru hard times.I do too, cause it’s true. That is 1 way God strengthens our faith.I agree with you on that, if nothing else. But then again, do u think I’m going to believe that u NEVER worry about the future? Sorry about being so impulsive, I can’t help it.
    So, u like lord of the rings?I’ve never seen it,but I do like Narnia.I’m sure by now u’ve seen Dawn Treader. Me, too. It was way better than the badly butchered Prince Caspian. I don’t like radio theater Narnia too…

  • Aio LISTENER on February 15th, 2011 - 1:07pm


    much cause the actors all sound the same, at least the main characters. And I’m almost certain that Reepicheep is played by a woman.When I heard a preview, I thought it was the white witch.
    Hence, now is it? I like the English accent but not the word shan’t.Too old fashioned.
    As for me being a boy or a girl… I will tell u if/when I get a reply from you.

  • jordan on April 8th, 2011 - 5:57pm

  • PEGGY on April 18th, 2011 - 6:50pm


    Barrett is so funny in this episode! Olivia is calling him on the phone and he says something like, “I found the last penguin, I win! Overall this was a pretty good episode, and Wooton was great.

  • PEGGY on April 18th, 2011 - 6:53pm


    I think Odyssey is somewhere in the Midwest because of all the references to Chicago.

    @ AIO LISTENER: It’s been over a year, but I don’t like to leave strings untied, so I’ll go ahead and answer. I don’t know if you’ll ever read this, but if you do, then I’ll know I don’t work in vain. Anyway, yes I’m Lady Eowyn, and yup, I’m a girl! My bro WAS wakingup2010, but he changed his name. Sorry, he won’t let me tell! 🙂 Don’t worry about being rude, I’m hard to offend.
    I’m glad we agree on something. And no, I don’t expect you to believe that I NEVER worry about the future. I do it a ton. But then I have to sit back, and think, and realize that God is in control. My views have changed a little since we last talked, but I’m not quite sure which part it is that’s different. I’m impulsive, too, come to think of it. We should get along just nicely. 😉
    I’m an ULTRA fan of Lord of the Rings. I LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT! I just reread all three books a few days ago. Yeah, I’ve seen Dawn Treader by now. Hmm, I kinda liked Prince Caspian better, but I understand if you like Dawn Treader more. Some of the radio theater actors were used over again. I guess it all comes down to what you like. Me, I don’t mind hearing the same actors over and over. But that’s just me. 😉 Reepicheep a woman? I think it was a guy, but it does sound awfully like a woman. 🙂
    I guess I’ll be old-fashioned! I don’t mind. And if you like to be up-to-date, nothing wrong. I can still be your friend.
    Well, now that I’ve replied, I’ll be waiting to know if you’re a boy or a girl. I just hope I don’t have to wait as long as I made you, before I get a reply! 😉
