Those of you who are familiar with the enneagram may remember the initial skepticism that comes when someone tells you that human nature can be described in terms of nine basic types. I was utterly convinced that my enigmatic friends wouldn’t yield to such descriptions — but of course, they did, and I relished the uncanny descriptions that made sense of so many mysteries.
Today, I have had a similar experience of skepticism shattering. Chris made a throw away comment after the eucharist about her new Wee Me avatar, and said they had the perfect hair for me. Surely not, I thought. There is no way that a mass market cartoon character is going to end up looking like long-skirted, dog-collared, untrendy me.
Well, I was wrong. It was Molly they couldn’t manage.
