"The Eye," by Alice Munro

Some days you wake up, brush your teeth, forget to do Kegels, and say, "if only The Guardian was running a new short story by Alice Munro, then I could go on."

Somedays you wake up and wish you were Alice Munro, telling the same exquisite lady-centric story over and over again.

@Anne Helen Petersen SOUNDS LIKE WE NEED A GROUNDHOG'S DAY REMAKE

There are no movie theatres, malls, or pricey coffee chains where I now live in small-town Ontario.
However, whenever I venture back to the big city, I pass the Alice Munro Literary Garden, which is just a short drive away.
Fair trade?

I really enjoy Alice Munro, but I always feel like I'm missing a secret layer of meaning in her stories.

Some days you wake up and realize that when anyone mentions Kegels, ever, you involuntarily clench your vaginal muscles.

She's my favourite author! Thanks for pointing this out!

Since The Guardian haven't enabled comments... anyone want to help me with the meaning of this story? Sadie's an imaginary friend, right? So what the heckins was the funeral all about??
