No Chianti on the First Date

by Alan

What fictional character (other than one of your own)
would you like to have a fling with?

I’m a happily married man, so I don’t have flings. In fact, I don’t believe I’m even allowed to think about having flings (I’ll have to check my contract).

But, in the interest of being a good sport, and not wanting to let down my blogmates, I suppose I could come up with a fictional character to have a fling with (you know, taking one for the team).ClariceLecter

I wouldn’t mind, uh, getting to know Clarice Starling from Thomas Harris’s Silence of the Lambs. (Note: Definitely NOT the Clarice Starling from Hannibal. In my opinion, Harris gave her some kind of personality transplant between books.)

Clarice is enthusiastic, conscientious, physically fit, smart, brave, and tenacious. Good with firearms. And fights on the right side of the law.

What more could a guy ask for?

Good intellectual choice and one I think your wife would approve of, for the sake of the blog, of course.

Well played, Alan. I'm glad I didn't draw this topic.
