My friend Kelly's Facebook status this morning says something about the German octopus that has predicted Spain to win the World Cup. I had no idea what she was talking about, so I googled it. Apparently, they have an octopus that predicts which teams win sporting events. The keeper puts in two crates of mussels, each with the differing flags attached, and whichever one the octopus picks is the one that is predicted to win. So far, the octopus is predicting with 100% accuracy during the World Cup.
I happen to be one of those most exasperating of people: an indispensable woman. I love reading more than just about anything (and, indeed, usually think in terms of literary characters). I try to follow the golden rule, usually come off as a goody two-shoes (which I probably am), and have the feeling that I am often not understood. I dream of babies, and a husband, and puppies. Perhaps one day, God willing.
