Being a sleeper agent can have it’s drawbacks. For instance, this cover story they have given me. The Psychic Hamster – please! Who would fall for such an obviously invented idea…
Well, the humans (or “hands” as we call them) apparently.
I have gone from magic eight ball to hamster tarot, and next week I have an appointment to prepare something called an “infomercial” for my phone line.
I hope the mission continues long term. My life style has become quite opulent, especially now that the hands have moved Bitey-Whitey, the assassin who was assigned with me, to her own quarters…
I have had many fine furry friends since GInger came into my life and introduced me to the idea of keeping small animals, but never another like her. She was a *ham* in ever sense of the word, and would happily let me set her up for photos, or spend an hour in the pocket of my shirt asleep to be with me.
Before Ginger, I was afraid to give my heart to something with a life span long enough to completely steal your heart - and no longer. She taught me the value of shared time, something I tried to express later in Quel Fara - a story about a ranger, an elf and a dog and how love is shared between friends even when species have different life spans. (By the way - I understand the person who translated that title for me used a non-standard elvish, so if anyone can give me a good translation for Good Hunting, I will be in your debt.)
Ginger wrote many journal entries and invented the form Hamster Haiku. She has her own website where they can be seen, along with photos of her opulent life style.
