Write about: the case.
Natalie came over this morning to play with Max. For a very long time they were in Max's room with the door closed, making just enough noise for me to not worry about them. It was great.
We're very fortunate that they play so well together. Here's hoping that when there are four of them (number three will be arriving next month!) that the dynamic continues to be this good.
"As this is your first day, each of you will be assigned two cases."
That's it? Two? I'll be knocking on his door for more work by lunch!
"One case will be current. Basic, fairly straightforward stuff. General, you're a warm body and that's all that's required to finish things up, kind of work."
Did I say by lunch? I should have said by coffee break. First coffee break.
"The second will be an older case. Really old. Crimes that have gone unsolved for years and years. Covered with dust and complicated. Intricate. Convoluted. Strange."
Now this sounds interesting.
"The expectation is that you will be a fresh pair of eyes, bring a new perspective to these cases. You will find a detail or ask a question that men and women who are much smarter than yourselves have missed. You will uncover something, no matter how seemingly trivial."
Give me my mine already. Let me at it.
"You are not expected to solve these mysteries."
Maybe you don't figure any of them will be cracked. But you should expect one to have its perpetrator brought to justice. Mine.
"Good luck, ladies and gentlemen."
Luck? Luck will have absolutely nothing to do with this.
"And welcome to the force."
Let. Me. At. Them.
