As if a ton of rocks were dumped on her head, Fiorella has again been reminded of how different she is. How--well--weird. If you've been reading Fio's blog for any length of time, you've probably come to the same conclusion.
Basically, the problem is, as Fio's mother once told her, "You think too much." Yes, Fio's mind munches on everything in the meadow. She theorizes about past times, even prehistoric times, and she wonders about the future. She is not content just to live her life, but also wants to understand it. In fact, she wants to understand everything.
And she wants to do everything too. She wants to paint and draw and to sing and compose music and to write poetry and short stories and novels. She wants to design and sew and crochet and embroider. She wants her house and yard to look spectacular. And, although it's way too late, she'd like to become proficient in some of the languages she's dabbled in through the years: Russian, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Telugu, Hindi, and Mandarin (Latin and Sanskrit being optional).
Yes, Fiorella is certifiable.
