Josie’s irrational fear of belly buttons was well-known by her adolescent children; they could interrupt any long-winded maternal lecture just by tilting up their shirt hems in unison.

Josie confided all her medical issues to her sons, but to her daughters, Josie conveyed nothing unless it was strictly necessary - which it rarely was - with the result that, as is so often true in human nature, the sons and the daughters bitterly envied each other.

Josie noticed that if she kept a bunch of bananas in her kitchen, they would sit untouched until they turned brown, but whenever she bought just one banana, her kids would fight over it.

Josie liked to tell people that she was the reincarnation of one of her own dogs (or vice versa), explaining that, if it was possible to live more than one life, a little thing like the manipulation of time and space could not be that tough.
