I, for one, would never want to pack heat, walk the street,
and find myself face to face with a mugger just salivating
over the last two bucks in my wallet.
(and believe me, that's on a good day right after getting paid)
I would, however, love the opportunity of facing the same
criminal element if I were the character,
She's not afraid to face the bad guys.
She seeks them out, corners them, dares them
to cross her path. And when she's done,
she dashes home, puts on a spot of makeup,
(she's ravishing by the way)
and is ready to be Super Cool, soccer mom
of three--a talented cook and bottle washer.
She's triumphed over evil in the world one more time.
No one's the wiser.
Is she afraid?
Well, there was that one time
when the baby had projectile vomiting.
Really scary stuff!!!
At its best, this is suspense in the safety of your home:
crashing down doors of hardened criminals,
walking in dark alleys, alone, with hundred-dollar bills
hanging out of your pockets, maybe ripping a child from
the grasp of a would-be kidnapper disguised as a clown.
(did I mention God blessed me with a quirky imagination?)
All on the pages of a book.
Just waiting for you to plunk down your money,
rush home, and wait to see where the suspense will take you.
