And, most importantly, dont open locked doors in strange houses. These helpful warnings, gathered by the Brothers Grimm, have guided us for generations as we set off to explore the dark woods, negotiate with strangers, and protect ourselves from things that go bump in the night. Times change, but todays nonconformists still need sage advice as they venture onto the road less traveled. Not grim warnings--just some helpful tips from women who arent afraid to wear red shoes and who frequently stop by the crazy herbalist in the dark woods for a cup of tea. So its time to forget the Brothers Grimm and prepare to meet the Sisters Odd: modern--and eccentric--women who venture onto strange new paths and learn some practical lessons, such as: Beware of strangers, especially when youre on the run in uncharted territory- Always read the bottom line when dealing with supernatural beings. Twice- Do not share your cosmic visions with mental health professionals- Take care when mixing old worlds and new technologies. Lots of care- When you hear things that go bump in the night, its time to start packing- Think twice before trying to exact karmic justice. Then think again- Beware of aliens bearing false faces. They do not come in peace- Dont believe all the tourist information you read. Not all small towns are quaint- And, most importantly, if someone forbids you to open a door, leave it closed!
