Tucson Citizen Police Academy Week Two by tucsonmike on 18 September 2008 1:48pm
 
Well I discovered I would make a lousy cop. I normally do not get carsick, but at high speed on a track, forget about it.
The cops doing the driving course have way too much fun. A bunch of little kids, singing doo wah diddy diddy bum diddy bum through the loudspeakers, carrying into the desert night. One car ran the same snake over twice. I emailed a friend about this, who emailed me back (and you didn't pick it up? Rattlesnake stew is excellent, plus I need new shoes)!
The Police have a simulator. I got to chase a bad guy, in the simulator, did better than most, but I lost him and took out three other vehicles.
An amazing night. Have lots of respect for these guys.

Sounded like fun! Not sure about the rattlesnake, though!

Well I'm gonna stick my neck RIGHT out and say the only good snake is a dead snake.

*ducks*

I'll make myself bit more clear: poor snake being run over twice! Hopefully it died after the first time, hate to think any kind of lifeform in agony and pain. I like snakes... as long as they stay away from me!

Dead snakes are good if they are in my space. Keep them in the dessert or jungles or forests, well away from little ol' me! Otherwise, a dead snake makes me happy.

CSI:Tuscon

***

In our last episode:

CSI: Tuscon

crime lab technician: "Hey Grissom -- I mean, Tuscon, you're gonna want to see this..."

[Silhouetted figure appears, blaring desert sun behind him, heat waves rising, until the solemn face of TusconMike becomes visible. He stops one step short of crime scene.]

[crime lab tech holds up a clump of something in her long tweezers]

crime lab tech: "It's another...furball."

TusconMike: "He's toying with us."

to be continued...

***

CSI: Tuscon
Act II

[techno music plays as lab tech runs various tests on suspect furball. TusconMike enters, leans in doorway.]

TusconMike: Got those results for me?

lab tech: Yeah, Gris - I mean, Tuscon. Full spectrum analysis reveals an anomaly in the DNA. The suspect, it seems, is predisposed to...

TusconMike: Yeah? Out with it, man!

lab tech: ...well...it's so rare, it's uncanny. The condition known as Borderline Yerbicitis Neurosis.

TusconMike: A YERBIE?

[TusconMike rushes away from lab, speed-walks down the hall, hits a speed dial button on his cell, frantic. After a 3rd ring...]

TusconMike: C'mon, COME ON, answer!

[voice of Katherine over the line]: Willows here. Hey, Gris - I mean - Tuscon, you wouldn't believe what Sara and I found, it's...

TusconMike: There's no time! Get out NOW.

[Scene change to cellar of suburban desert home. Katherine inadvertently aims her blue light at Sara. Katherine is frozen and her eyes grow wide.]

Sara: 'You smell that? What the...

[cut to black screen, sound of tool kit smashing to floor]

to be continued...

Well, SURE, but it's not over yet! Forgive my ignorance, but have you posted a picture of the Magic Wonder Cat anywhere?
