Tell Me who’s the Criminal FIRST!

I know I have some strange parts in me, too… There might be no person who can’t be called strange…

But you know, we can find strange parts of others easier than find of ourselves…

Now, I want to share my experience meeting strange person.

She was my co-worker in the office where I worked once. She and I sometimes talk about the books or mangas we had read.

When I told her I loved Agatha Christie and talked how it was fun to read detective novels, she said…

“I can’t read detective novels without knowing the true criminal FIRST.”

…Why?

Because, she said,

“I can read it with ease. So I should always check out who is the criminal first in the detective novel.”

What surprised me the most was, that she has willing to read detective novels!! I thought she hated such novels at first…

rainbow kidMaybe she loves Columbo…

Ah…I’m not sure… can you watch Columbo with ease?

Anyway, it was interesting and I wanted to heard about her “motivation for crime” more, but I couldn’t do well. We were hopelessly different kind of person for each other.

About detective novels, my mom also loves them. Mainly foreign one (we are Japanese, for your information). But she cannot be surprised when the detective points the true criminal.

…Why? Did she also check the criminal first?

No. Because she cannot remember who’s that. She hopelessly isn’t good at remember foreigner’s name!

Why, Japanese…
