I love it when a plot twist jumps out and hits me between the eyes. OMG, this is frickin' brilliant. How I didn't consciously think of this before, I'll never know. My subconscious must've been playing with it all along, though, because the groundwork is already laid.
Good subconscious. Maybe I'll treat it with a good cup of cocoa-coffee.
1 packet instant cocoa mix
1 tablespoon instant coffee (leaded)
lots of hot water
Stir thoroughly. Sip slowly.
And if I'm feeling particularly randy, I add a splash of Creme de Cacao or Irish Creme*. Mmmm.
*Not tonight. I need a clear head for this.
