They’d arrest me! Or at least they’d take a look at my husband’s health. Yes, all day yesterday I was combing the Internet for the best poison. I wanted something fast-acting. I didn’t want it to be messy. I needed something that could be mistaken for natural causes. And boy did I learn a lot! Did you know that potatoes can be poisonous? In high doses, they can cause stomach ache, dizziness and even coma! I’d have to do more research to figure out what a “high dose” is, probably 10 pounds in one sitting. But this is the joy--and danger--of the Internet. You can find out millions of facts, and certainly enough to be dangerous if you don’t dig really deep. Because there is so much contradicting information. You can’t look up just one site, you have to look up a ton of them to make sure you have a consensus. Consequently, I spent all day on the Internet and got to call it work! I did find my poison, too. Not for my husband, of course, but for my character in the Jennifer Skully novel I’m working on. She’s Jasmine’s alter ego. Hopefully the book will be out some time next year, and then you can see what devious poison I chose and who I chose to kill with it!
I’d love to hear what you have fun researching on the Internet!
