  1. This reminds me of when I worked at the library and had to check people’s bags when the alarm was set off. Man with briefcase sets off alarm, I ask him to open, he does, he has hand with newspaper covering something, we do NOT look at each other. I know I have to look under paper, he doesn’t want me to. I do. It’s a gun with a silencer on it. I know we aren’t checking out guns so I let him go. Love the piece and all it’s intricacies.


    • OMG, Bonnie! a gun with a silencer in a briefcase!! Good thing you had the smarts NOT TO LOOK HIM IN THE FACE. Who would have any good use, as in ‘for the good’, for a gun with a silencer. There’s a story there, and thankfully, you were not a main player in it. San
