Dude Walks

“Tell me how it happened.”

“Are you recording me?”

“Well, yeah.”

“We were having dinner with some friends. There weren’t enough chairs. Lamont sat on the window sill with his plate of ravioli. There was a pretty big earthquake somewhere — maybe out in the ocean, maybe Indio, I don’t know — and he was shaken off his perch.”

“That’s it?”

“Yeah. That’s it.”

“Some guy’s come to bail you out, but you can’t leave town. You’re a suspect in a moider.”

“I keep telling you, there was no moider.”

“Inspector?”

“What is it?”

“We’ve gone all over the body. Β Looks like the guy fell out of a window.”

“No moider?”

“No. Everything — all his injuries — are consistent with having dropped two stories and landing on his noggin. No indication of extra force. Just sweet gravity in action.”

“Well, Dude, looks like you get off this time. Sorry you lost your friend.”

“Don’t fret, Inspector. He’ll be back.”

Previous Episodes…

Lamont and Dude are characters I came up with a few years ago. They have the uncanny ability to remember many of their past incarnations which gives them a unique perspective on life, the universe and everything.
