It's like the lottery -- someone has to win

I knew if I waited patiently, something would just fall in my lap. It's all about keeping your eyes open. Call me a go-getter.

When some people read in the NY Times that Mexico is offering a $2 million reward for the capture of top drug lords, some people shake the lead out. Some people lace up the New Balance, and put a few gallons in the Matrix, and start nosing around. Some people start asking the right questions at the right time to the right people.

Don't get too excited; it's not a done deal yet. But I see a new roof, professional pest control, and better food in a certain person's future.

Adios

  3. Can you score me some penicillin and a good bottle of tequila? It's okay if you steal both. I assume drug lords would have name brands.

    In fact, while you're rooting around in a dead man's medicine cabinet, see if he has any Vicodin.

  5. So I guess what you're telling us in so many words is that you and Albert are now kick-ass licensed bounty hunters. Can the reality series be far behind?

  6. While waiting to find a connection, I'm working on a little poetry:
    WiFi sucks/In a Tiajuana Starbucks.

    Your messages are garbled, but if you're concerned, yes, I brought bottled water. I didn't just fall off the jalapeno pepper truck. Now, if I can just score some ice cubes...

  7. This is too cryptic for me. Albert might enjoy being kidnapped for ransom, but it doesn't sound like fun for you.

  8. Just read the LA Times story, and I've decided that I'm going to get Shorty. How hard could it be to take down a little guy?

  9. When opportunity knocks, Susan answers. I'm waiting at the first Starbucks by Revoluntion Circle. Bring some extra energy bars (peanut butter and fudge), ice cubes. And kibble.
