"When we achieve something we never expected to get or lose a penny and find a pound, we instinctively react like a cat who's got the cream. It is as though we have managed to put one over on the world when no one else was looking and believed us to be asleep to endless possibilities.
There is a small part within all of us us that welcomes wicked thoughts and antics with the childish anticipation of sweet victory. Though such wickedness varies in both type and extent, it never entirely leaves us between cradle and grave.
For my part, I must confess to toying with the minds of my readers by merging metaphor with double intent and single imagery. This is partly done to keep the old grey matter working and to delay any possible onset of Alzheimers, but I must admit that I also get great pleasure out of winking at the Gods."
