Coyotewoman, that's me

I'm once again pacing the floor and waiting for the proper time to go over to church and get ready for the 4 p.m. service. Boy, will I be glad when we can meet in the morning! I scheduled my final wedding consultation meeting for noon today, and after working for an hour with the couple, I still had two hours to burn before it makes sense to go over there. So I sat down and checked out the quiz site I've noticed, and here is the result. It's not an age-appropriate site for someone who gets Medicare, but I could deal with it, and I was kind of tickled by the result, because I've always felt that this was truly my totem animal.

I would think twice about choosing the coyote. In a Tony Hillerman novel set in the Navajo world that I just finished reading while waiting for dinner at our local vegetarian restaurant, Coyote is out there in the wild waiting for you to die so that he can eat you. (Of course, if you are the coyote, you may think that is all right.)

Ah, but LF, I didn't choose the coyote, the coyote chose me. S/he is, after all, according to Web Kitchell, a minor deity in the pantheon of southwest US native deities. And what would be wrong with being part of the food chain? Just recycling on a grand scale, right?

Pixie, you do the same thing! I've been reading your blog!

The combined comments of death and fools reminded me of the O. Henry story of "The Fool Killer". If you've never read it, there's a free version here: http://www.literaturecollection.com/a/o_henry/249/
