Homeland Insecurity

I've been doing some online research about bank alarms and security, hostage negotiation procedures, and the psychology of various participants in hostage situations for a story I'm currently working on. Do you think someone's gonna break down my door?

Yes. I plan to. To, you know, help you work out the story. Prob about 11:30 tonight. In your, uh, "story", would I use rope or handcuffs? I know how important it is to get the details correct.

Don't worry, I won't bring Howie Mandel with me.

As far as you know.

The best part is that you don't know yet how this ends, but I do. Sure you wanna play along?

Oddly enough there will be zip ties involved. But you don't get them. I do. Yes, this could be very valuable for judging how my male protagonist would react. . .

PS, please don't break down the green door. It took me like 6 coats to do that. But any other door is fair game.

GuTTer MuNKi said...

Cha Zif!!

You already went behind the green door years ago! That would just be a redeaux. (That word, obviously, is for the Ironman)

Oops. Was I supposed to keep that quiet?

Candace said...

Something was niggling at the back of my brain when I wrote the words "green door." Oh yeah THAT's it. . .

The Ironman will have to love you for that. Won't he? He keeps asking for pics of your butt. (not saying if it's the one you own or the one you wear. ;-) )

I think we're going to frighten people off. That usually happens when we start chatting here. Oh well. . . ^_^

Oh my, you two are it online again. Someone's at your door Candace, you might want to get it. Strike a pose!

Candace said...

Efo!! Speak of the devil! Which door? Front or back?

GuTTer MuNKi said...

Why do you ask? Does it sound like knocking at both doors?

Candace said...

Are you saying there are people poised to assault both entrances?

GuTTer MuNKi said...

Well, I remember you saying how challenging it was, behind the green door, trying to keep your poise when there were people at both doors, and your hands full - and wasn't there something about humming? Anyway, I just didn't want you to get all frazzled before TKD.

Candace said...

Oh yeah, THAT'S helping. Thank you so much. When I start turning red during warmups, you'll know what I'm thinking about.

egan said...

Holy shit, you're naughty. I was going to suggest the two of you should find a room, but you already have one and it's full "equipped" if you know what I mean. Bugger off, I have important stuff to do. Keep on writing in the free world!

Candace said...

Oh it's equipped alright. I should shown you Moody's trunk. ^_^

Bugger off? Really?
