I could have murdered someone today. There were enough looks at the academy--probably all caught on tape—to justify a homicide.
I get it. My brother’s under police custody at the hospital, lying comatose accused of murder. So the strange looks…well, I get it. But I don’t have to like it.
And what I like less is coming to the Sergeant Major’s (my dad) and acting like Michael isn’t in serious trouble. “There’s nothing that can’t be fixed with a good grilled steak, a couple of Corona Extras and a Cowboys game.” Yep that’s him spouting his words of wisdom to my brother Sean. And yeah, they’re watching the Cowboys—bad season and all—while *I* grill the steaks.
Sometimes that’s enough. But today, I’d sort of like to come up with a plan of action on how to solve Michael’s little problem of being accused of killing my partner.
One thing at a time, I suppose. First is deciding how to cook the steaks. So for me a little fresh-cracked pepper, lots of Worcestershire, rosemary, some garlic and my secret ingredient, lime juice. No salt, even though I love just a tad of sea salt. (I’ll save that portion though for the grilled asparagus.) And now for the guys…
They like pepper-encrusted sirloins. I wonder if they’d notice if it were just cayenne and jalapenos?
Ha Ha… Think they’d listen to me while drowning the flames?
