Chapter 1
     You've heard that old saying, "Be careful what you ask for, little girl, you may get it." Well, I am living proof that sometimes, old saws can be pretty cutting edge. I said all I wanted to do was work at home and have as many cats as I could take care of. Maybe it was wish fulfillment or karma smacking me in the backside, but I am now single, 29, and the unpaid servant to four well-fed felines. We all live in the apartment above the store I inherited from my Crazy Aunt Fiona. No. Seriously. That's what we called her. Crazy Aunt Fiona.

     I can see my mother now, handing me the receiver of the kitchen telephone, the one with the cord that was stretched out so straight you could wander over half the house with it. "Norma Jean, get in here and talk to your Crazy Aunt Fiona."

     Yes, you read that right. Norma Jean. Mom is absolutely in love with Marilyn Monroe and chose to punish me with her obsession. Thank God Daddy heard that and said, "Lord God, woman, you have jinxed this child for life." That's the name that stuck. Jinx. Most people don't even know my real name.

     Mine was a pretty conventional Southern Baptist raising in our tiny town. Mom is the devout one, and dad and me just try to stay out of trouble. By the time I made high school, I understood that we are actually "dancing Baptists." Come Sunday morning a certain brand of amnesia kicks in about where the family might have been the night before and how much country music could have been involved in the activity.

     Crazy Aunt Fiona lived one town over and ran what mom referred to as a "rat's nest of a tourist trap." I could never figure out the second part of that statement since there wasn't much in our neck of the woods to see. That was before I understood some people live all their lives cooped up in cities and can't wait to enjoy some real countryside.
 
     The other part, about the rat's nest, was a no brainer. Dad swore a guy could walk in off the street and say, "Excuse me, do you have a spark plug for a Studebaker?" and Fiona would have produced one. She sold everything from penny candy at the counter to love potions out the back door. You want a Moon Pie and some fishing worms? Fiona had it.

     The idea of a coherent inventory or any particular purpose for her store never seemed to enter her head. When she decided she wanted to serve food and the health board got all bent out of shape, Fiona just happily took the required state course, met their standards for food preparation and went right on about her business -- that is as long as the food inspector wasn't in sight.
 
    "Everybody that comes in this place drinks homemade whiskey and would cook up road kill if it looked fresh enough," Fiona declared. "They're not gonna be catching any bubonic plague germs from me."
