Death Investigator

"I like to think you killed a man. It's the romantic in me." Rick Blaine: "I came here for the waters." "Waters? We're in the middle of the desert!" Rick Blaine: "I was misinformed." Tonight's movie is Casablanca. I returned home today to find the specialized cleaning van parked outside my condo building, and large hoses leading snaked into the door. My first thoughts were of finding a crime scene upon entry. Either I need to get out more, or I just need to finish writing that murder-mystery and be done with it. Thankfully, These guys were just here for the annual carpet cleaning. I should have been sweet and offered them lemonade. Hopefully this year, someone won't be so kind as to grind crickets into the freshly-cleaned carpets. It really doesn't help with resale value if the stairs look like some soul has met their fate. And back to Bogey. I think this is the start of a beautiful friendship...

My new neighbors make my condo building like a season of FRIENDS. There's a lot of working out, crafting, movie-watching, day-discussing, and protein-smoothie-iced coffee-drinking going on here. It's much akin to college.
