How the mind loves a tidy story, all ends tied up, no grief, anguish or loose threads; so amusing to see all the tough tales prettied up, closure- it must be in our DNA. For the IWW practice stub this week, even Red Riding Hood and Madame Bovary were tonied up.

SO true. Reading the Arabian Nights was highly entertaining but drove me mad trying to keep track of the loose ends, wanting to know which went where.. perhaps intentional.
