I have to confess that the sane person inside of me is freaked by what is going on outside my office door. This morning there were even more police and clean-up crews as well as large trucks and tankers hauling stuff away. This is what it looked like this morning.
So, regular me is a little concerned. Maybe more than a little concerned.
The writer in me is busy memorizing every little detail and wondering, “Is it possible to make a heroine sexy in a Hazmat suit?”
Luckily, the Santa Clara County Fire Department has made it easy for me to imagine Hazmat clothing as fashion wear!
Notice the wide inviting grin and sexy lean to the hip. Imagine having to take off each piece of equipment. Slowly. Delicately. Carefully, damn it. The stuff is contaminated!
It reminds me of the scene from IN THE LINE OF FIRE with Rene Russo and Clint Eastwood. They are both Secret Service Agents guarding the President and are alone one night in a hotel room when passion strikes. Of course, first they have to get rid of their holsters, radios, ear pieces, etc. It was quite a scene to watch them fumble with the trappings of law enforcement while on their way to a passionate encounter.
So, do you think it will work? Do you think we can make the Hazmat clothing fly on one of my future heroines?
