Baboons In The Mix
Suzie came over last night. Bernie opened some chardonnay. He’s not a big wine guy – prefers bourbon or beer – but Suzie likes it. “This is from South Africa,” he said. “Apparently the baboons over there love the chardonnay grapes, eat them by the ton.”
“So that’s a recommendation?” Suzie said.
They laughed. I didn’t get it. But I knew baboons all right, and not just from Animal Planet. There’s a baboon in To Fetch A Thief. Did he actually make off with a piece of the evidence? That was bad, but I’d been pretty busy at the time. It all came back to me.
“Hey,” said Suzie, “did you see Chet shiver just now?”
“He sometimes shivers in his sleep,” Bernie said.
Sleep? Did they think that just because my eyes were closed I was sleeping? That might be useful some day. I tried to think how exactly, came up with zip. Then my eyelids got heavy for real. Funny how life works.
