The Case of Too Many Mystery Novels

My mom and I were on the way to get lunch today when I noticed an old grey car following us. Of course, I didn't mention it to my mom because I didn't want to worry her. I just kept "uh-huh"- ing at the appropriate pauses in her story and kept my eyes glued to the side view mirror.  The car turned off after a couple of miles. Must of known I'd made him.

The restaurant was packed and the man in front of us was a pilot. At least, he was wearing a pilot's uniform. The thing is, the restaurant was no where near the airport. "Why," I thought, "does he want us to think he's a pilot? What's his game?

When we got home there was a UPS delivery truck parked in front of the house. A man with a package was standing at the door but it turned out he was at the wrong house. A likely story.

It might be time to lay off the mysteries.

And that is why I don't watch scary movies or read scary books--I start thinking the zombies are going to get me.

My thinking gets VERY creative when I start (and start avoiding) a big project. Have fun with the creativity and best wishes.

It MIGHT be time to lock yourself in your room and write your own book.

I heard on the news the other day that if you drink more than 7 cups of coffee in a day, you might become delusional & hear voices in your head. Do you need to cut back your caffeine intake? lol...

and I was amused to see Erin, sweetly suggesting it is time to get to work. I think they miss you at the farm...

You read too many mysteries. I am ashamed to admit I watch too much CSI... which means I notice similar things, AND come up with a lame-o pun about it. ;)

I'd like to recommend a non-beach book mystery that's one of my all time favorites. The Alienist by Caleb Carr. It takes place in the late 19th century NYC and the detail is amazing.

I can relate - it is really hard to get out of those mysteries and back to what passes for then real world. Then again, why bother?
