“It looks like someone hit it head first” said the policeman as he wrote up the crime report for damage done to the Blarneymobile. ” The dent does look head-shaped” I agreed, looking pensively at the windshield ” But how could that happen?” The car had been parked outside the house last night with one perfectly intact windshield. This is how it looked this morning.
” It would have been a hell of a crack” I said “Whoever did this must need their head examined”
“Could be anyone” said the policeman, looking around. He didn’t not seem inclined to dust for fingerprints or look for those stray hairs that are usually so helpful in solving crimes. Nothing about the incident seemed to strike him as odd. Just another routine call-out in Itchy Ankle where boys will be battering rams.
