at the three of them and said, ‘So y’all want to
be cops, huh?’
The blondes all nodded.
The detective got up, opened a file drawer and
pulled out a folder. Sitting back down, he opened

The blonde rolled her eyes and said,
‘Well, Helloooo! With only one eye and one ear, he
certainly can’t wear glasses.’
