|I had best not reveal which of these authors is my cousin's husband.|
|And yes, one of these authors was my high school classmate.|
|Eavesdropping and remembering is only a talent in my dreams!|
Listening for details much less remembering them was sadly never a talent of mine, and thinking rationally is not either. I can connect all the dots, and arrive at a picture not seen by anyone else! I can't even report on what I have learned without jumbling up all the facts and to this day, I still can't begin to keep a secret about even the most frivolous of subjects! My emotions can be played like a fiddle and I am so predictable that I can be manipulated or even baited to act on cue! I am that naive and gullible! The only time I will be a spy is in my own imagination and fortunately, on that count, I am not lacking! Even my family keeps secrets from me, knowing that if you want the world to know something, you have only to whisper it in my ear!

* The illustrations are not my own, but are a result of googling images of female spies (in particular ones of the Revolutionary War), and from Amazon's listings of books by those I know whose careers are in intelligence, but likely haven't a clue as to who I am. Perhaps I have a bit of sleuth in me after all, knowing of others who know nothing of me?
