Bad Taft Detective
by befrank
If I was on the run, Taft would be a good place to hole up. I can’t say that I would have ever in a million years have thought to come here.
I’m staying in Taft in part because of my job as a news photographer. My station sent me here to cover the school shooting that happened at the high school.
I’m also here because it snowed last night and the road home was closed.
Mostly I’m here because they pay me to do what I do.
It might be cool to be a detective. Me, I could easily pretend I’m looking for somebody missing or trying to find out who killed a stripper.
Got to make sure my electronics are charged. •••
The truth is that I’m a semi-bored photographer / SAT truck operator. I’m not hung over and I didn’t meet any colorful characters who roughed me up for sticking my nose into other people’s business.
Best burgers ever!!! •••
Maybe there is some common ground between what I do and what I do in my very active imagination.
To be on the safe side, I’ll sleep in my clothes, keep one eye on the streets outside my window and wait for the phone to ring.
You can never be too careful in a cheap hotel, on the wrong side of town, in Taft.
