Where did I get the idea that Janette is particularly good with numbers? In "Can't Run, Can't Hide," where she does her own business taxes by hand and implies she checks her accountant's work? I don't remember, but it's one of the character tidbits in "And So It Goes," which I wrote for a very good friend, to whom at the time I still felt obliged to provide ample evidence that I no longer believed Janette had died in "The Human Factor" (I was such an irritating newbie; you have no idea). Thus this story, my first contribution to the Song Challenge, the longest-running fiction challenge in FK, originally issued by Susan G.
