Desperately Seeking Sharon, Part 7


   I finally made it back to my office. Even though I went all around the world I didn't really get what I had set out for. The Baron made good on his contract though, he even paid me a bonus- in mutton!

   And now I am alone. Alone, sitting at my desk with a glass of Brennivín, my laptop, and an 8x10 glossy of her- Sharon Spotbottom.

   She's even more of a mystery now than when I started. What makes her tick? Why did she do that disappearing act? What was it with that poison dart action? And that stunt at the UN! I guess I'll never really figure out that dizzy dame.

   I was just about to put a lid on the whole affair when I noticed an eMail had come in on my MacBook. I opened it with some trepidation. It was from Sharon, one last chapter in this strange saga:

Hiya Batty! Sorry about the dart. Sometimes I just have to get away for a while, and you were crowding my personal space. I needed a new perspective on things. Maybe this will answer your questions. SHARON

   I guess it's true what they say about her: Sharon is all things to all things and nothing if she is anything.

What a journey, what a conclusion.
A well written and rich character driven delight. One mans search for an elusive bird bringing him full circle back to nothing and finding everything.

Blogger Times best seller list for 7 weeks.

I hate to be redundant, but EPIC is truly the word, Batty.
My two favorite blogger both have an excess of unchanneled creativity.
But maybe after this I can no longer say unchanneled. Anyway, it was great.
Brimnes has finally made it to the top of my to do list-yay!
