Well, this is what they say:

You're Love in the Time of Cholera!

by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Like Odysseus in a work of Homer, you demonstrate undying loyalty by sleeping with as many people as you possibly can. But in your heart you never give consent! This creates a strange quandary of what love really means to you. On the one hand, you've loved the same person your whole life, but on the other, your actions barely speak to this fact. Whatever you do, stick to bottled water. The other stuff could get you killed.

Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.

As the British would say, chance would be a fine thing! I do stick to bottled water, though.

Or then again, as the British would say, pigs might fly!

Which reminds me of the splendid day, a couple of decades ago, when some rock band (Pink Floyd?) wanted a flying pig on their album cover. In those pre Photo-shop days, they had to arrange to actually have one in order to photograph it. So they had the parade folk create them a giant inflatable pig, filled it with helium, and strung it up between the towers of the largest power station in the world in its day, Battersea Power Station, on the south side of the Thames river in London. (see photo - taken on the second attempt to fly the pig)

Alas, before they could photo it properly, the tethers broke, and away it flew, straight up into the flight lanes leading to Heathrow Airport ... to the astonishment, consternation, and confusion of a number of experienced pilots, it has to be said.

Hope they were sticking to bottled water!
