The time I had to hold a man at gunpoint we had a 'plan' on how to capture him (he was a burgler who had been ripping off my parents for weeks.) Well the plan went wrong when he showed up unexpectly. All I could think of saying, when I jumped out from the door was, 'Just stay'.
And later, in the Virgin Islands, when a purse snatcher snatched a woman’s purse and ran, it was so sudden with my wife saying something like, "go get him", I just threw off my sunglasses and hat and ran. Yes we caught him (there were two of us) but even then there was a struggle and he almost slipped out of my wrist lock I had on him. Strong he was.
No, Brother Murphy is always there and nothing ever goes to plan. Every time I see a Van Dame movie where he knows all the right moves and every hit he takes leaves just a little bruise, well it IS entertainment, right? Yes it’s fantacy.
