1. My daughter recovered from her stomach bug in 24 hours, which leads me to believe that it might have been a case of food poisoning. (My sister-in-law's a nurse, and she said that food poisoning comes on fast-about 1 to 2 hours after eating-and usually clears up in less than 24 hours. Stomach viruses do not.) We had stopped at a McDonald's on the way home (oh, how I hate fast food!) and there might be a link.
2. I never did get sick which also has me thinking it was the reason I mentioned above.
3. My son had his face looked at yesterday, and the lab showed that it was indeed a ruptured cyst. He was also given the okay to go swimming, and this was on our agenda for this weekend!
4. Finals are drawing to a close, and I have a good start on getting the grading finished. (Now cleaning my room for over the summer is another story...)
5. My daughter hasn't quit gymnastics, at least not yet, and seems to have a renewed sense of spirit after practice today-she has super coaches, so I'm guessing they have something to do with it.
Writing in the Buff, posts a picture meant to serve as a fictional book cover.
It's your job to write a blurb about the book in 150 words or less to entice a prospective reader. Are you up to the challenge?
Here is this week's picture and my story:
A woman disappears without a trace, and does so from an apartment directly across from police? The girl’s parents call on the force’s best man, Detective Gerard Boucher, but even he is baffled.
Camille was a young starlet capturing everyone’s heart in her first major picture, “Cry Before Dawn”, and she was enjoying all the benefits of being associated with a widely acclaimed film. Her agent, Hampshire Smith, recently helped her acquire a flat in Paris, chosen because it was near popular nightspots and security.
Hampshire reported Camille missing when she didn’t show up for an interview. When he investigated, he found her flat unlocked and no sign of her anywhere.
Detective Boucher didn’t know why, but the apartment’s balcony and Camille’s neglected geraniums fascinated him-was there a connection? But as he was staring at the flower yet again, he saw someone watching from the window across the street… (149 on the dot-hard tonight!)
Well, I've been having so much fun that I've lost track of time. I'll be by tomorrow to see what you see!
