Chetspeak on Sunday

We’ve been doing beginnings. Here’s PAW AND ORDER:

We blasted out of bayou country, Bernie behind the wheel, me in the shotgun seat. Our ride’s a real old Porsche, the oldest we’ve had in our whole career. The last one got blown up; the one before that went off a cliff. And who can remember the one before that? Not me, amigo, except for how loud train whistles turn out to be from up real close. The point is old Porsches are how we roll at the Little Detective Agency, just one of the things that makes us so successful, leaving out the finances part, where we’ve run into some hiccups I won’t go into now. And don’t get me started on hiccups, which is the annoying thing about them, namely that you can’t stop. What else do you need to know? Bernie’s last name is Little, which is how come we’re the Little Detective Agency. I’m Chet, pure and simple.

We came to a crossroads with a roadhouse on one corner. Bernie slowed down and read the sign: “’Ti-Pierre’s Cajun BBQ.’” No surprise there: for some time now barbecue had been in the air, impossible to miss. Bernie tilted up his face – no need to describe his face, the best human face in the world – and took a sniff. “I can almost smell it,” he said. Yes, the best human face, not at all like those tiny-nosed human faces you see so often. Bernie had a nose that looked capable of doing big things. So why didn’t it? I turned to him, gave that nose a good long look. He gave me a good long look back.

    Hello to All (and a special Hi to Masquers). Any news of a date for the new C and B?
    I’ve been hanging on to this term with my fingernails, but now that we’re doing social problems related to sex and drugs I’m starting to breathe easier. Factoid: Female copperheads (snakes, not ladies) can reproduce asexually. Not sure if that’s a good thing or not…
