Whoa! Discovered by Mark Shea. How nice!
Hello, Mark Shea's minions.
Mark might be too busy to offer updates, etc., but actually I am married to a Scot. I shopped Seraphic Singles* around for a year or so, and by the time someone said "We'll take it", I had had a whirlwind romance with a Scottish recent convert who simply was (and is) The Perfect Man for Me and been married for three days.
So I am afraid I have to turn down all the marriage proposals Mark so kindly elicited. Instead I will continue to write merrily on Single issues and hand out advice to such girls as write in. Today, however, I am going to Montreal to visit my nephew Peanut and my niece Popcorn and their parents.
But I will leave you with a snippet of conversation with my nephew Pirate (age 7).
Auntie S: What would you do if an enemy invaded your island home?
Pirate: I would throw an atomic bomb at them.
Pirate: And when they were dead I would build the buildings again.
Auntie: But what if the bomb poisoned all the land and the air?
Pirate: Then I would move somewhere else!
*Update: The BOOK, I mean.
