You’ll only have a couple more days of this, I promise.

Episode 3 of Bodies Made of Smoke is online. Get yourself caught up by reading Episode 1 and Episode 2.

You can always spot a good lie if you’ve been lied to enough. The details are ambiguous but plausible enough if you hold enough credibility and faith in the person telling you the lie. So something such as “An ex, who wouldn’t tell me her name, said you hooked up with her after your last trip, after you saw me” only works if told immediately after it happened, not a month after it happened and that there is phone log evidence that the number was indeed blocked. The lie also only works if the year is 2001.
