Besides, he heard another wall might be coming … and he wanted nothing to do with that. The first one wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.

Photo finish Friday: “Film at Eleven”

Some things you can’t ig-noir.

From my limited understanding, they were filming scenes for one of the cable true crime shows, which is interesting if not ironic because the owner of the house used to read true crime books. Then she married and had two sons, and found them to be scary enough, as young children often are.
 
When we arrived, the entryway — foyer — was strewn with magazines, papers, and other chaos to make the house looked ransacked, and two actors — too young, too thin, and too nattily dressed to be real police detectives, were putting on blue surgical gloves as if they were about to inspect a crime scene.
 
I wonder what cops wore before latex.

Oftentimes the biggest thing holding you down is the crap from above that lands on your wings.

Monday morning writing joke: “Pointed”

There once was a writer of romance. /

Who often had her characters de-pants. /

Some said she oughta /

Instead be writing erotica. /

Her knights were always using the wrong lance.
