PASS THE CATSUP
I've recently discoverd a fun blog written by a 20-something female private investigator: P.I. Files: Day to day life of Polly the P.I. Polly warns her readers of graphic content, usually a murder scene. However, for CSI fans, it's fairly tame reading. Here at Kitty Litter Central, we eat our dinner while watching CSI reruns, and I usually serve something apropos. So when the CSI camera takes the plunge into that stabbing victim's heart, we're savoring spaghetti. Or when Grissom eyes those maggots in that poor woman's skull, we're slurping gumbo with rice. I think the best one was the night night we were eating goulash while Catherine Willows and Sarah Sidle were dealing with that bloated, slimy decomposing body in the bathtub.
The walls and ceiling are covered in blood spatter. The floor has drip patterns. I see a steak knife with the blade broken off lying on the floor near the closet. It had been discarded in favor of a pair of scissors, which are also near the closet. Over against the wall by the bathroom I see a full length mirror. Up about 6 feet on that wall is a bloody hand print. I examine it. Detective Blue says, "Yeah. I'm hoping that was made by the perp and not our guy in the closet." Don't count on it, I think.
