The fates have interceded on my behalf. The fates and a local school board offered the Tall Teacher a job. He started this morning.
But....he feels guilty about dropping the Caribbean folks at the last second. So he hasn't informed them yet. He could still decide to go. Has he not realized the fates will not be mocked? Not to mention the beauty of avoiding having to find some stranger to sub-let to for 6 months.
Meanwhile I have to re-evaluate my skepticism towards the value of prayer.
