Alice was the principal of Holy Family Catholic School seventeen years ago. As an employee, I saw her quite frequently. One day I noticed something was different. It had to do with her hair--it wasn't that it was different, it looked like her hair, it looked like a wig. I asked her if everything was okay and she said it was. Not so much time goes by and Alice looks thinner. I ask again and she still says everything is fine. Now I am starting to hear rumors and parents are asking me what it wrong with Alice. I truthfully say that nothing is wrong, after all, I am feel close to Alice. If there was something seriously wrong, she would tell us. Never did I suspect she had cancer. People were only told after she died. For all the secrecy, Alice was the subject of gossip among the parents. A few people knew. Some people guessed, but a lot of us wondered why?
