Thalia hummed the tune of an old favorite. When she recognized BINGO and COVID both have five letters, she couldn’t believe her luck! “There was a Typist — had a virus — and Covid was it’s name-o. C—O—V-I-D! C—O—V-I-D! C—O—V-I-D! And Covid was its name-o.”
“Creative.” Urania gave credit where credit was due.
“Guess her number was up?” Calliope shrugged. “Almost can’t believe it’s taken so long for her to catch it.”
Unlike time, life is not linear.
It has twists and turns.
You make plans and the unexpected forces you to re-calculate.
Knowing this, some of us might be content with the scenic route.
