Wait…I Smell A Rat
I was watching Castle a few weeks ago.
Beckett was being held hostage and stuff. (Just a normal day at the office for us 21st Century career girls.)
So the dangerous mobster puts Castle on the phone. And Beckett talks to him, tells him she can't wait to go see his favorite baseball team play.
And then he knows. He knows she's in trouble because she hates his team.
It got me to thinking. What would I say that would tip off someone on the other end of the phone that things are not okay? That I'm minutes away from being stuffed in a trunk and becoming fish bait?
What is something that is SO not you, that your phone-a-friend who just KNOW they need to call Detective Esposito to rescue you?
Mine would go a little something like, “Hey, oh, yeah, things are GREAT. What's that? No, I totally can't wait for that Coldplay concert with Jack Johnson as the opening act. A killer with me? Nooooo. Why do you ask?”
What would your tip off be?
My tip-off? There are a bunch, but probably one sure one would be to say, “I have tickets to a Madonna concert, then we’re going to an after-party rave.”
Alternatively, anything to indicate I’ve become a Pittsburgh Steeler or Green Bay Packer fan would do it.
