be sure to have a trusted contact person

and no, im not talking about your best friend, the bum on the street or the barista behind the counter at the starbucks you go to every morning. im talking about the person who goes and reports back to someone official. someone whos not going to screw you over by turning you in. ya know, like on those cops shows? all the cops have a trusted source on the street and they always go to that source because they know the word. and that trusted source will always trust that cop because theyve never given up a name. see what i mean?

Chief is my trusted person. i know what he does for a living. its because of what he does that made me seek him out in the first place. and because of the person i am, Chief would cut off his own arm before screwing me over. but he was different. he was the deal breaker. no Chief, no agreement with The Company.

trusted sources dont have to be in an official capacity, though, like cops. newspaper reporters are pretty cool. or so ive heard. and those reporters on your local tv new stations arent exactly alien lifeforms. just sayin’.

cmon, come in. im on the case

I Spy Friday: The Difference Between Him and Those Other Guys

Almost two years ago, you know that I cashed in my Get Out of Hell Free card (see Hello, My Name is…post) and headed to the Valley of the Sun. Okay, well maybe you didn’t know that last part, but I basically left a craptacular old life and started over. Although I owe The Company for helping out with that, Chief (not his real name) was the main reason for getting out. Chief is a beautiful 6’3 Apache Indian, an ex-Navy SEAL, and the owner of Black Hawk Protection Agency. I’m his client and he’s my guardian–so to speak–until I turn 18.

There are companies out there that offer personal protection or security individuals: people who will analyze and protect someones personal business,home or property. Making sure someone is safe in their surroundings. Of course, there are also private investigators that can provide services for the individual (think spousal or matrimonial stuff) or a small business. But that’s not how Black Hawk Protection Agency works. It started with Chief, then the guys from his SEAL unit joined after their tour was up, and now he’s in charge of almost ten guys.

And they protect children, ages 4 to 19.

Children born of famous actors, actresses, visiting dignitaries, and billionaries.

And a then-15 yr old girl who’d sold her soul to the devil The Company for a new life.

In Celise’s words, “He’s the Vaughn to your Sidney.” (Can we say, too much Alias, boys and girls?)

I never watched the show, but it was one of her favorites and she explained what she meant.

So, yeah. I like it. Cool.
