Because I’m nosy…..


Week 4 of the #MFRWauthor 52 Week blog challenge brings us a topic that should be fairly easy to write about, because most of us didn’t spring from the womb with a pen in our hands and a publishing contract in our arms, but had other lives and occupations before being published. At least, I think we all did!! Maybe I should just speak for myself. Hee hee.

Anyhoo…

If I wasn’t devoting myself full time to writing, I imagine I’d still be employed as a Nurse, or a Contact Lens technician. But I’d like to take that thought a little bit further. If I couldn’t write AND I wasn’t a nurse/CLT/ what would I be doing? I think I’ve mentioned before how nosy I am. Several times, in fact. So nosy that I’ll talk to a rock. And the nice thing is that people never seem to mind my obvious inquisitiveness, especially when I preface a question with, “Now, I’m only asking because I’m nosy so don’t think you have to answer me if you don’t want to…”

Yup. They answer me. Every time!

So I think if I wasn’t a writer, I’d be a perfect Private Investigator.

I can see it now… Me, in a well-tailored black trench coat ( because Khaki washes me out!), thigh-high leather boots under the coat, and over them a large men’s white tailored shirt cinched in at the waist and that comes to mid-thigh. I can even see myself with a fedora atop my golden (Bottle blonde) hair, looking uber sexy and all mysterious as I grill bad guys and follow suspicious perps in cars with my own hot, fast, ride.

Everyone would, of course, talk to me. After all, I’m charmingly nosy. And sexy!

 

Jessica Fletcher’s got nothing on me.

Neither does Mrs. Peel.

I’d be the chick who discovers the identity of the master jewel thief, or where the hidden treasure is kept. I’d help the police solve the unsolvable cold case, or figure out who killed Major Barret in the solarium with a gun…oh, wait, that’s something else!

Hee hee.

I think I’d make a pretty cool P.I.

Now, I just have to find a trench coat on sale…..


 

Since this is a blog hop, hop on over to these other authors and see what they’d be doing if they weren’t writers. Wonder how many would be PIs

  1. This is awesome! With your description I can totally picture you killing it as a private detective- and I’m so gonna steal the ‘because I’m nosy’ line to get the scoop, lol when my old standby doesn’t work (Ie: so why did you think I wanted to talk to you today– you find out all kinds of stuff, lol)

    Maureen – it works EVERY SINGLE TIME!! I’ve never had someone be put off by it, probably because it’s a funny thing to say. Go ahead and “steal” it!!! it’ll work for you, guaranteed.

  3. Fun! I’ve been watching a lot of Colombo lately and apparently they had a short run of a Mrs. Colombo show. Being a private I sounds interesting and now I’m picturing the shadowed face with the killer hat and bright red lips like from the movies. I think I need to watch less TV LOL

  4. LOL….I recently discovered I love ‘snooping’ through other people’s stuff! This from cleaning out three grandparents’ homes, and helping my mom declutter her house, plus cleaning out the two homes we bought last year! I’ve found some real treasures!
