Call me crazy but I finally finished building the rocket Cocoa bought while he was pregnant.
Sure it might kill me, it might not even take off, but I gotta try it out!
Since it was my day off, I figured I HAD to give it a simple spin. Just put it in low earth orbit and then come right back. That should be safe enough. I haven’t had a chance to upgrade the rocket. It’s just OOB right now, out-of-box. My mom spent her whole life upgrading her rocket before she ever flew in it. She said she wouldn’t have dared fly without all the extra fuel, improved boosters, landing gear, etc. But I’m not in a legacy anymore and I didn’t have to wait.
It took off like a charm and I enjoyed a few moment of weightlessness. Well actually I’m not weightless, I’m just falling sideways so fast it feels like I’m weightless, but physics aside, it’s awesome. Everyone should try it.
Cases continue to pile up at work. I’ve got several going now that I’m a Lieutenant and every day brings us closer to closing one of them. I’ve got the “Banana Theif.” They’re related to a previous criminal I’d booked, but their taletell signs is all over this crime scene. I think they might be a criminal leader or perhaps a mastermind who trains other criminals.
Then there’s the “Apple Artist.” A graffitii artist who is either copying the Banana theif or just came up with a similar tag.
This “Apple Artist” was easy to catch. Another young teen turned to crime. We found her at the park, and the moment I sat down she looked nervous.
But she’s not a hardened criminal so after a little questioning, she broke.
I asked her about the banana found at her last “artistic” expression, but she said she didn’t know anything about it. She said it wasn’t hers and she was allergic to bananas. She just wanted to go to university and become an artist. It’s sad, but that pack is probably years away.
Coming home that night there was a terrible commotion.
Several folks were fighting on the street right outside our house. Although I wasn’t technically on the clock, I think I scared them.
I don’t think they’ll be causing any more disturbances.
