Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I’m no sympathizer with theives, but sometimes I feel bad for them for succumbing to a momentary lapse of judgment or, at least, of conscience. Oftentimes they have bigger problems, an addiction or a bad debt. Most disturbing are the sociopaths, unencumbered by conscience or guilt, just taking what they feel entitled to. These people feel no remorse — only rage at me for getting in their way. In fact, they usually blame me for their problems. In their twisted sense of reality, things were going pretty well until I showed up.
