Some people who know me have commented on my penchant for writing about 'spousal despatching' in some of my fiction and wondered if there is an element of truth….yes, I see those sideward glances as I pass by. I can assure you Mr H is alive and well!
I hasten to say not ALL my writing involves the demise of someone. However, so far, amongst other things, I’ve written about death by poisoning, being pushed under a car/train, thirst/hunger, bullets, knives….but I wonder if anyone’s written about death by knitting needle, for instance? (that might have Mr H worried :-o)
Sounds a bit Miss Marple-ish – and how might it be delivered? “….X despatched him with an accurate thrust of a size 9 needle…..you could say he was cast off….”
So, anyone else come across eccentric despatch methods in print? (Or can you suggest some perhaps?)
