Ringfinger Fishtail was a trendsetter. One evening she wore a pink satin eyepatch to an art show opening in her neighborhood. Within a week most people in her town were wearing eyepatches. By month’s end the whole country was crazy about eyepatches. They were everywhere. By that time Ringfinger had moved on. Eyepatches no longer interested her, but everywhere she went she saw people with one eye covered by a patch. Do you know how silly that looks? said Ringfinger to passersby. She often heard the same retort: Two eyes good, one eye better. Ringfinger covered her ears and screamed.
