Daphne: An exemplar for, “Be careful what you wish for.” Or, maybe, “Be precise in what you ask for.”
You remember Daphne. (I remembered Daphne as Diana. [Sorry, ma’am, I won’t make that mistake again, at least not until the next time.]) Anyway, she (Daphne, not Diana) was the one who prayed to Zeus to protect her from Apollo’s advances and got turned into a laurel for her efforts which was, I suspect, not precisely how she envisioned it playing out. If Zeus’s transformative activity were a curling shot, I’d be hard-pressed to score it any higher than one out of four. Apparently it didn’t occur to Zeus to fix the problem at source.
Why was I thinking of either goddess, or one goddess by either name? Because I opened a cupboard door, and there she was: Diana. Daphne. Who-ever.
