SPIES LIKE US ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA


Intrigue filled the air at 7th and Montana this morning as the Screenwriter Brothers tipped me off that they were expecting their "informant," a Genuine Secret Agent who has been advising them on a Top Secret Script, to join them for a cup of coffee. "Really?!?," I said, "There's an agent in our midst?!? ... This I have to see!" I spent the next ten minutes playing an unsuccessful game of Guess the Gumshoe. "Is it him?," I asked, quietly pointing to a middle aged man with gray hair, a crew-cut and dark glasses. "Get real," said Rob, "We're talking about a real killer here. That guy has man-boobs." "O.K., your right," I said, "He looks more like a retired airline pilot, anyway. What about her?" I gestured at an elderly woman with a distinct limp and a purple tinge in her hair. And so it went, until I had worked my way through just about everyone around us. "I give up," I said, getting up to leave. Just then, Mark got a text message. "Ahh," he said, "That's him ... he's running a little late." Only in Hollywood would a Secret Agent send a text message to a Screenwriter when he gets stuck in traffic. I'll bet, like all the other agents in town, he also works on Ten Percent Commission ...!

I remember in a chat room where this gentleman was trying to win the affections of this other chat member and was bragging about being an agent.

I said if he was really an agent, he would not put himself out there because I would think they tend to blend in like normal people.

But unfortunately, at 7th and Montana, exactly what is normal? LOL
