    First Lines

    It was Christmas Eve, and I had gotten a call from the twenty-seventh precinct. The sargeant explained to me that my great aunt had been picked up for "loitering, and something we haven't found a name for yet."

    Hi Karen! Actually, that was Patricia Schwitzer who wanted a critique, not me, but I'll gladly accept it! Thanks very much, I found it an immense help.

    By the way, Glen Ellyn, IL is an actual town just outside Chicago, and one of the few I'm familiar with that fits the type of area this scene takes place in. Yeah, it does have a lot of L's in it!

    I like the suggstions you made and am off to go to work on it. Thanks!

    Thanks, Patricia Grant, for being so gracious about my mistake. You're obviously a classy lady!
