Believe It or Not

I read part of a book today. Now wait, before you get excited and happy for me let me tell you what it was. The Unofficial MacGyver How-To Handbook. Yes, just something I had lying around. Bet you’re wondering now, aren’t you?

Actually, it is kind of interesting. It’s divided into sections. I figure I can read one a day at lunch, thus keeping myself out of trouble until the picnic table is set up in the courtyard. Then I’m going to work on taming the squirrel who sits outside and keeps me company many days.

Today’s section was Great Escapes. I can now break free from a meat locker provided I can manage to disconnect one of the hooks from the ceiling, escape from a snake pit if I just happen to be carrying some kerosene, and get away from a pack of wild dogs in a department store. No, I don’t ever recall encountering wild dogs when I was shopping but you never know. I’m prepared now on the off chance I ever do.

Tomorrow, I’ll be learning the top seven ways to booby-trap a car. I’m sure that will come in handy sooner or later. If not in my own nefarious life, then surely somewhere in the lives of my characters. I'll let you know any other nifty tidbits this book teaches me.

Okay, I was only just wondering the other day how does one break free from a meat locker?
