Dialogue Story, the Ginger Ale Mystery
"So Hans, how was your day today?" said Miguel.
"Not all too well," said Hans with despair. "I broke a string on my
violin today at the orchestra."
"Broke a string eh?" said Miguel. "Did you see it in time?"
"No, no one told me until after the performance. Damn, I wish people
weren't so intimidated by people who are blind." said Hans.
"Yes, I can relate. Hmmm..... Your violin you say? How would you like
me to take it off of your hands?" said Miguel, with a hint of interest in
"What? What could YOU possibly give me for my prize Stradivarius
violin?" screamed Hans.
"Well, we could make a little wager." Miguel was now full into the
violin. "I am a particular mystery fan."
"Well, so am I, Agatha Christie always makes me laugh!" cried Hans,
with tears in his eyes.
"No, not that kind of mystery. I'm interested in locked room
mysteries." whispered Miguel. "Do you know what they are?"

"They are mysteries where locked rooms are involved," said Miguel,
"and where one person might have to do something to get into the locked

"Ginger ale into a glass of ice? That's quite easy." laughed Hans.
"Yes, but not when YOU are in a locked room, the ice and glass in a

"Head seat of all violinists, plus 100,000 dollars, in CASH." said
"Now i'm in it. But you want my Stradivarius violin if you do it?"
"Yes, thing's aren't cheap these days." said Miguel. "We'll see what
you can do! The wager is on. You must come into a dark, lightless room,
with ME in it, open the safe, take out the glass, take out the ice, and
pour in the ginger ale, all without me hearing you?" asked Hans, just to be
"Of course. And the date for this little wager shall be three days
from next wednesday, on saturday." said Miguel. "And good luck."
"Good luck to you my friend, you'll need it." snickered Hans.
"He's left! I've got him now! I can't possibly lose!" screamed Hans.
"Ouch! I shouldn't dance so much when I can't see anything,
especially that darn sofa!" exclaimed Hans. "Ouch! My knee hurts!"
"Ha! Ha! The day has come! Let's see what Miguel can do now!" laughed
Hans, waiting for Miguel.
"Hello my friend. Are you ready?" asked Miguel.
"Ready and waiting." said Hans.
"Let us begin." said Miguel.
"Here we are, in the room I've chosen." said Hans.
"This is fine. Where are the glasses and the ice?" asked Miguel.
"Right on that coffee table.
