Help! (Semi-Evil Non-Plots)
June 15, 2010 4 Comments
I slept! I woke up without the aches and grumps that usually mark my mornings! I have also had two cups of tea (formosa dark!), one cup of coffee, a coke, two kinds of dessert and chips with mashed-up avocado and now I am trying to think of several failed terrorist plots!!!! For a plot! And I need help!!!!
If you can think of any methods for a (fictional, by the way–I am not actually planning to be a failed terrorist) person to go through a security check and get caught/arrested with something
a. potentially terroristy and fatal but which —here is the real challenge—
b. she could plausibly talk her way out of,
I will pay you for them in chocolate and glass etchings of robots, my series of which I plan to resume. Or in even more homemade coasters for your nonexistent coffee table.
The person: a woman, 20-35, wears long skirts, looks a little like Claire in The Book Group. Her quest: to get temporarily arrested for a crime she never intended to actually commit. In an airport. So far I have her wearing plastic explosives in her shoes. They’re too subtle. She doesn’t get caught. BUT: the plastic explosives, had they been detected, wouldn’t have been detonatable (not a word! don’t care!). And she bought the shoes from someone else and has arguably been framed. You get the idea. She could have gotten out of it.
- Knife that wouldn’t get detected by the metal detectors? Supersharp but biodegradable! Made by a fruitsmith out of welded peach pits/molten mango cores? She lives on a commune and uses it to prepare her vegan airport meal of coconut (hard to cut)?
- Locket/tiny grenade—actually an anti-rape device? Throw the necklace and it explodes, creating a diversion? Accidentally wore it to the airport. Possible heirloom; didn’t know it was live?
- Seeing-eye Komodo dragon. (She’s allergic to dogs!)
- Mace-containing inhaler
