What If Wednesday: 15 March 44 B.C. What if Caesar lived?

The more I researched Caesar’s assassination, the more intriguing it became. I loved how in the HBO series ROME, a contributing factor was Vorenus rushing away to confront his wife, leaving Caesar defenseless. But, in reality, there are some theories that Caesar had a very good idea what he walking into that day.

It must have been rather hard to keep such a conspiracy secret in a city such as Rome. Caesar was suffering from a malady, many think it was epilepsy, although some have proposed he suffered mini-strokes. Regardless, he was an ill man. He did some strange things in the months leading up to his death. At one point, Marc Antony tried to crown him and Caesar refused. But its doubtful Antony would have come up with this on his own.

Perhaps Caesar committed suicide by assassination?

But a more intriguing What If is this: What If Marc Antony had been able to get to Caesar and warn him? Together they decided to turn the tables on the assassins?

Caesar was only 56 when he died. What if he’d lived another 20 years, ruling Rome? How would history be different?

Game of Bones: Episode 3: Becca, daughter of Party of One & Dress Me In Buckskin.

While Gus, not yet Cool, was being trained to be a knight, including captaining his own kayak, his brother Uno, aka Wyntercreek Party of One, was, well, having a party. With Wyntercreek Dress Me In Buckskin. We won’t get into the details, but I think her name says it all. Something kinky.

Uno’s title gives you an idea of his personality. Party of One? Really? I think not. Because he peeled those Buckskins off of Tandy, as she was more commonly known, and got to work.

And the result was Becca, Sassy from the word go.

Other significant names in Sassy Becca’s lineage: Trinity Titus (okay, that’s a good one for an action hero); Eternal Joy; Otter Be A Star (but learn how to spell first); Chablais Singing in the Rain; and the ominously named: Something’s Amiss.

IMG_0447 3Because one day, there was Sassy Becca. Sent by his brother, Uno, to usurp the usurper (can you do that?)

And right from the start, she made it clear who was the boss.

What she lacked in size, she made up for in intensity. When she was awake.

She had little interest in swimming. Or chasing a ball. Becca’s was the art of diplomacy, intrigue, and food. Mainly food.

Episode Four: Gus Becomes Cool Gus

PS: Uno is still in the Green Islands, still doing, you know what. Don’t tell Gus.
