Why, days like that, she could completely lie!
This is not the stretch of the Achilles heel (to which the Matron is prone) or the wee waggle of hyperbole (guilty again!), but all out pure Fabrication. Have you heard of April's Mom, the woman who faked a difficult pregnancy online only to drew MILLIONS of readers--some of whom sent her money, called her daily and organized prayer chains on behalf of her entirely fictive fetus?
Maybe the next time ideas elude or illness intervenes, and the Idea Well runs dry, the Matron will just invent . . . .wait! Who's that on the door step!?
Paternity raise thy unholy head! Who knew John fathered conjoined twins, long held captive by their psychotic mother, who are now free and seeking sex reassignment surgery (like little Chastity) and in need of a place to stay while the hormones perculate!
Just when she had nothing to say . . . .
