Hello, my Freaky Darlings!
My niece got married this weekend! Even though she and most of my family were in New Zealand and I was stuck here in South Africa dealing with power issues thanks to the endemic corruption that has crippled our power utility company and no water for the weekend, I was still able to be there virtually thanks to Zoom. Isn’t modern technology amazing?
It was a lovely wedding that I watched at 4 am from the comfort of my bed, in my pyjamas, with a cup of coffee. Granted, it would have been far better to have been able to attend in person and sit on a picnic blanket on the grassy embankment overlooking the lake and watch my beautiful niece walk up to her husband-to-be and take her vows in such a tranquil setting. However, at least I still got to be there without coughing up a kidney to sell on the black market to pay for the trip. I shed a few tears when she said I do, and then I got to go back to sleep. So that’s a win-win for me.
Have you attended any weddings or significant events via Zoom?
In this week’s video, I get to know the Kappa, which means River Child and are mythical aquatic, reptilian human-like creatures that are about the size of a child and live in rivers and streams all over Japan.
What do you think of the Kappa? Creepy, just meh, or rather funny?

Well … that’s it for now. Until next time …
Happy reading, and thank you for being a Freaky Darling!
