My implant has proven so lifelike, I've given it a name: Arbella. Arbella also is the name of the woman (Lady Arbella Stuart) I firmly believe wrote the plays credited to Shakespeare--or many of them, anyway. She's the only one who COULD have written them. She was a member of the nobility, lived in the royal palace, and could read and write four or five languages. While the actor William Shakspere's peers in birth and education were writing urban comedies (which Shakespeare never wrote), Shakespeare's plays were set in royal palaces and in various cities in Italy. Arbella led a list of prominent writers in Shakespeare's time, a list on which William Shakspere was nowhere to be found. Shakespeare's plays are famous for their strong women. I submit that's because the person who wrote these plays was a woman. Many of Shakespeare's plays were first performed before the Queen, also. None of his peers' plays enjoyed such a venue on their opening nights.
My Arbella is raring to go. She hears my fingers scratching my right ear, and she is alert to taps on the knob on my skull. Tomorrow in less than 10 hours, Doogie Howser will turn her on, and as my mother used to say, "we shall see what we shall see."
