The Old Gods

I think it was Nemesis who objected to the young hunters scorn for those around him who thought he was rather wonderful. And I guess in those days an apothecary might have prescribed something like the gall bladder of an Owl washed own with bacon grease for something like hair loss. But it was Nemesis who had the brilliant idea of reflecting pool as a more lasting solution.

Worth remembering Nemesis was a Goddess, probably a ten on the super bowl boy scale of goddesses, and there's one story about her that suggests she might have pissed off Zeus, who was like the head Pooh-Bah up there in forever land, and to avoid his most masculine wrath, she turned herself into a Goose. Odd place, the world.
