Chetspeak on Sunday
“What’s your name?” he said.
The dude gazed up at Bernie. He licked his lips, something I always watch for in humans. He had a stiff, pointy tongue, kind of whitish at the tip. I made up my mind about the dude: bad news, period. Period means case closed. Our cases closed just about every time with me grabbing the perp by the pant leg. So if I snapped down with a nice toothy grip on one of those overalled legs at this very moment, did that mean the job was done and we could pick up our check and head for home?
I considered that question from many angles – actually, none – and while that was or was not going on, the dude said, “Everyone calls me Moondog.”
Whoa right there. Sometimes with humans you can’t be sure you heard right.
“Moondog?” said Bernie. Maybe he was having the same problem.
