Yesterday, the main headline said: WOMAN SAYS VODKA BOTTLE TAKEN.
How about that? Does that grab your attention? It did mine. Reading on, I discovered the woman came home to discover the bottle missing. (And here I must wonder if she discovered it missing by immediately going to the liquor cabinet or whether she had it prominently displayed for people to admire when they first came in the door.)
Strangely, her car had been moved though it was still in the driveway. (Aha! Maybe the thief had to move it to get into the house? Maybe s/he started to steal the car and decided to pick up some refreshments while there? Maybe s/he started to drive off and realized, after imbibing, that s/he wasn't sober enough to drive? Oh, so much conjecture, so few facts!)
Nothing else was gone. (Guess the thief was addicted to vodka.)
The vodka bottle was valued at eighty dollars.
Wow. Must have been some upscale brand. Or maybe it was a really big, BIG bottle.
I do love this column!
