Good luck, in the form of The Great Albino Squirrel of Jamaica Pond, presented itself yesterday.
As we drove past the pond I said to my dear husband, “I wonder if the albino squirrel is still alive”--it had been a year since we'd seen him/her last. Not more than 2 seconds later, The Great White One appeared beside the road. My excitement nearly cost Alex his eardrum.
I feel pretty dang lucky to have invoked the spirit of The Great White One. I imagine people who pray to god wish he/she would show up like that.
