I Love a Good Mystery!

This is the Worst!

I don’t know if you’re familiar with a funny Christian comedian, Tim Hawkins. This Christmas, we gave dear hubby the latest DVD from Hawkins and laughed ourselves silly through at least 5 viewings.

So this weekend, when I was going through my most recent story, I had to chuckle when I found a conversation between Dani and Jay about something being “the worst.” Here’s the dialogue:

Jay glanced at Dani for a second then averted his gaze through the windshield. “I’m disappointed that another case had to happen during one of our dates. I’m disappointed that I’m going to miss out on working it. But I’m not sad that made the decision to come get you. To keep this date. I’ve been looking forward to having you to myself for a few hours.”

She laid soft fingertips on top of his hand where it rested on his gear shift. “I’ve been looking forward to this as well. When the call came over….”

“You expected the worst?”

“You working a case isn’t the worst.”

I reached the end and could just hear Dani say, “D’you know, son-times. When you’re at the mall….” Hahahahaha! So funny when my stories have odd connections!
