3TC — Witness for the Prosecution

0E6FF6D8-274D-46C0-A515-D86DF37A7855I received a summons to appear in court today as a witness for the prosecution in a breaking and entering trial. I didn’t see much of what happened, but I did hear the glass break and my neighbor’s home alarm go off, and I saw some guy wearing a hoodie running from the scene. But it was dark and I couldn’t see his face, so I’m not sure can offer much of value.

Still, I’m very excited about this. I’ve been summoned for jury duty three times in my life, but I’ve never been summoned to appear as a witness. I want to make sure I present myself well, so I spent a lot of time in the bathroom this morning. I showered, shaved, trimmed my mustache, brushed and flossed my teeth, and combed my hair.

I’m ready to leave my townhouse, but I need to check the mirror one last time. After all, I want to make a good impression in court today.

    It looks a little bit like you applied some eyeliner as well. (I know some people have that look naturally — also know this is a fictional story.)

    Great set-up. I know you were just writing to a prompt, but now I’m waiting for the gripping conclusion! Followed.

    Good one, and no reference to Halloween monsters.

      And I took off a few dozen years from my appearance, too!
