} Hmmm, gotta look at this from the other side.
} Hey Lisa! How did you catch me? Oh, yeah <blush> I remember.
} Uh, supplicant, have you large latex wardrobe?
} But then again, I only know of three women who refer to themselves as
} Goddess. Roseanne Arnold, Judy Tenuda and the lovely Hera. Now,
} Roseanne took a classic approach - money. The oracle usually
} discourages the notion that the indiscriminate application of money is
} the solution to any and all problems - at least until someone tries to
} indiscriminately apply money to the oracle. But let's face it, she
} didn't have much else to offer and didn't exaclty land a prize. You
} should aim higher.
} Now Judy Tenuda. Hmmm. She tries the old "music hath charms . . ."
} routine but who knows how successfully. I gather not very. Oracular
} hint nummber two: Skip the accordion.
} Hera, on the other hand, goddess that she is, has got Zeus wrapped
} around her little finger, and if you listen to the Olympian gossip
} she's got quite a few other prime catches at her beck and call. How
} did she do it? Beauty, intelligence, power - not necessarily in that
} order. No offense glo, but I doubt a goddess such as yourself is a
} goddess such as Hera.
} Which brings me around to how Oracle mere landed oracle pere. Mama
} cooks up the finest calamari in the Mediterranean. This is big kid
} squid, babe. Just what Pop needed after a long afternoon answering
} supplicants at Delphos. No resisting it.
} I'm not saying you gotta cook calimari, go with the times. A big
} chocolate cake could very well be the key, or a steak and kidney pie,
} or even providentially opened bag of Doritos. Food babe, that's the
} ticket. Just cause it's a cliche don't mean it aint true.
} And if that fails, ask Lisa if you can borrow her 6" stillettoes.
} You owe the oracle a package of oreos.
