I retreated up north to my family’s quaint log cottage so my shoulder could heal, and my friend Sid lent me his dog Kojak. Kojak and I both love lying on the couch. He takes time out to chase squirrels, and I obsess over my upcoming disciplinary hearing.
Meanwhile, a woman who just happens to look like my twin has been killed. Seriously. Wouldn’t that make you stop and think? Or act like a cop, and investigate?
