Life has been full of surprises for Lisa Binion. After a near-fatal car wreck, she was supposed to be paralyzed for the rest of her life. The nurses were shocked when she unexpectedly walked out of her room one day. Once a spider liked her so much that it tried to make its home in her ear. The memories of the day this spider lived in her ear still make her shudder. Then there was the morning she walked into her kitchen to find a baby bird perched on the Cream of Wheat tin on the back of her stove. How this bird made it past her eight cats without being eaten is still a mystery. She is excited to see what surprises life brings her way next, but she really hopes that it isn’t another ear-loving spider.
