I had Random.org select a percentage and it selected 17%.
Later, I went down to the kitchen, expecting to find Dad making dinner. Instead, Nana was sitting at the table, which was covered in a thick black cloth. The curtains were drawn and Nana had draped floaty scarves from the clothes airer that hung above the table. It was slightly spooky.
‘We’re having a séance,’ she said.
‘A say what?’
The witches came in all shaped and sizes. Some looked cheerful and expectant. Some looked fierce and determined. Some chattered to their neighbours, some didn’t. Some were all dressed up, and some were a total mess and clearly didn’t care. All were armed with a variety of serious-looking shopping bags.
I had random.org select a page, it decided on 91, since that was an illustration I added +1 on the page number.
But even as she worried about the Spellatron 3000’s failing magic, she felt in her element behind the counter. She would never admit it to her dad, but it ws more fun working a shop that sold speels rather than screws. There were pink sparks and rains of little blue stars. Things fizzled and twinkled and went off with a bang. There were strange smells.
Tried at first with Random.org but it kept suggesting the same # pages. 😛 So I decided to pick a page of my own, and that was page 32!
Plus I’ve decided I’m going to do a Tiara Girl video wearing a REAL TIARA!
So that’s actually three enormous surprises!
I just have to make sure I don’t get caught.
But surely I can come up with a good plan, right?
An Alice-proof, Grandmaman-proof plan, a no-one-in-the-palace-will-see-me kind of plan.
