Writing Can Be Murder

Have you seen the Drop O’ Blood guy?

I have a thing about people in costumes standing on street corners or outside of stores — I wave to them.

(I wish I could say this was a habit I developed as a kid, but it’s not. I just started doing it a few years ago.)

So a few months ago, I waved at the Best Costume Ever. A blood drive was being conducted, and standing outside (probably freezing) waving people in, was someone dressed up as a Drop O’ Blood.  I was so excited about this particular costume (and I fantasized that someday I was going to travel with an entourage of my own Blood Drops who will splatter onto the scene every time I have a book signing) that I called my friend Laura in St. Louis and told her about it.

Then I sent Laura (who once ran over the cross during Holy Week and had Apostles shaking their fists at her…but that’s a whole other story) a black-and-white photograph from the local paper of the said Drop O’ Blood guy in costume. I tried to tell her that he looked even more awesome in color.

Today she left me a message letting me know that SHE has seen Drop O’ Blood on the streets of St. Louis.

Have you ever seen him?

  1. Your own entourage of blood drops…and maybe one day a blood drop is murdered. One of the other blood drops did it, but they’re all the same type…how would you solve the crime?

  2. Whichever one tested “positive”?

  3. LOL! Positive for guilt or negative for innocence?

  4. That’s a good question. Might require further testing.
