Funny story. So, we talked this week about what Otto and Gaspar would travel with if they had the luxury of using travel gadgets, right? When I was researching travel gadgets, I found lots of devices for taking wine on-the-go. Apparently there’s a high demand for wine among travelers! Then, this showed up as a “Suggested Item” for me:
Alright, alright. I guess it’s fitting since I did share this post on my Facebook page this week:
And now that I’m putting the finishing touches on Jack and Joe, I’m definitely ready to celebrate with some wine!
While traveling (with or without wine) can be fun, it can also be work, as it is in the case of Otto and Gaspar’s travels on the Hunt for Reacher.
And in the False Truth Mystery Serial, Jordan Fox learned that traveling can be dangerous, carrying risks of kidnapping, illness, theft, and injury. She should have checked the tips for how it’s possible to break loose from wrists bound with duct tape. (If you try it, let me know how it works.)
Too bad Jordan didn’t know that Smithsonian Magazine says the scariest screams have similarities to the sounds of car alarms. The article says the screams we generally deem to sound the “scariest” have a wide variation in frequency. Like house alarms and alarm clocks. So, if she screamed similarly to the sound of an alarm, she might have elicited fear from her kidnappers. (What did she actually do to get away? Sorry! No spoilers here.)
On a lighter note, here’s an idea. Avoid being a kidnapping target in the first place… Eat cake!
