I have been wrapping up my CE’s. I only put them off until the last minute cause I meant to! I thought I would share one of them. It made me never want to take another pill for the rest of my life!
“I was working on the Munson case when she walked in. Tall, blonde, lips like a cinnamon bagel. Yeah, she was trouble and I was needin a little more trouble.
‘I have a case for you’ , she purred like a pink kitten.
‘Not takin any cases right now.’
‘You’ll take this one. It has you written all over it.’
‘Look, Doll, I run a serious business here. I ain’t got time to follow ’round the husband so you’se can take ‘im to the cleaners.”
She moved in closer, smelling of spring and satin sheets.
‘I’ll take the bait, Darling. I’m not married.’
‘Then whattaya here for? A pretty dame like you could have any poor schmuck falling all over himself to help you.’ I lit a cigarette and gestured for her to take one.
‘No thanks, I’d rather suck on a tail pipe’ She clicked her heels two short steps and pulled a folder from her coat. ‘Look at this.’
I opened the file, intrigued. Drugs, money, overwhelmed FDA personnel, Chinese corruption. I snapped it shut.
‘Miss, this ain’t a case, it’s a bomb, and it would destroy you and me both. Now, be a good girl and take that thing outta here.’
‘Don’t patronize me. I didn’t pick you out of the Yellow Pages. I came here because I know who you are and what you are not.’
‘Oh yeah? Who am I?’
‘You are Joe America, and you are not a coward.’
My palms began to sweat. She floated around to my side of the desk. Leaning in close, she stared into my soul, searching. I broke her gaze.
‘Lady, I haven’t taken cases like these in years. It’s too big, too much. I only take the ones I can win.”
She pulled my face back towards hers. Softly, she pressed her lips to mine. When she drew away she smiled.
‘Who…are…you?’ I stammered.
‘The name’s Liberty Justice and all that implies.’ She stood up and glided toward the door. She turned, smiled, and walked outta my life.
Anyway, the paper I had to read was about how China makes most of the active ingredients in our medications. The FDA has their hand’s tied and cannot inspect everything that comes in our ports. Yeah, so, I don’t trust our drug supply at all.
