Hello folks, let’s chat…I’ve just returned from a trip to South Carolina where I was a guest of Dr. Freida and her television program, Time For Hope. My segment airs in July, but more on that another time. I want to tell y’all what else happened while I was there.
One of my author friends drove in from another city for an overdue slumber party/chat fest. Nicole and I may have set a record for number of topics covered within a specific time period. The categories included but weren’t limited to rainbows, heartworms, holograms, chocolate, the theory of relativity, and how us creative types are often the missing link of our families. Nicole and I are convinced we’re balancing on a fine line between our relatives who are just shy of center and other relatives who think they’ve identified those who are just shy of center. And get this, we may have been under surveillance the whole time.
Seriously. Nicole and I remain intrigued by what she found when she pulled up the Internet Options on her laptop. Among the possible connections: Gary’s iphone, the Hampton’s Wi-Fi and– FBI Surveillance Van #2.
Boy, did we have fun scanning those around us for the possible spy.
Was it our waiter? Was it the elderly lady at the next table who kept frowning at me? Was I laughing too loud or was she profiling me? Was the young man engrossed in his laptop filming us or playing on Facebook?
In the end, Nicole and I decided our mysterious agent was probably an aging spy in need of a continuing education course like Incognito Online, or he could’ve been going with the “Hiding in Plain Sight” plan. Either way, you just know his fellow spies are laughing at him.
And yes, I do realize the sweet NSA could be listening. So, guys, while I have your attention, I’m toying with changing the name of my Wi-Fi connection– you know, just for the fun of it. Would y’all mind too much if I went with FBI Surveillance Van…#3? Call me. We both know you have my number.
