In a place where everyone knew my story, it was nice to know there was a chapter that only I had read.
“I know in the spy movies it always looks really cool when the operative goes from a maid’s uniform to a slinky, sexy, ballgown in the amount of time it takes an elevator to climb three floors. Well, I don’t know how it is for TV spies, but I can tell you that even with Velcro, the art of the quick change is one that must take a lot of practice (not to mention better lighting than one is likely to find in a tunnel that was once part of the underground railroad).”
“…maybe it’s only fitting that relationship that started with a lie would end with one.”
“The time for crying with your girlfriends about a broken heart is over chocolate ice cream and chick flicks—not stun guns and bulletproof vests.”
“You shouldn’t judge someone until you’ve walk a mile through an underground tunnel in her uncomfortable shoes.”
“If you can be still enough and common enough, then it’s really easy to be invisible.”
“All these years I’d thought being a spy was challenging. Turns out, being a girl is the tricky part.”
“Maybe wrist corsages cut off circulation to the brain? I mean, is that why so many girls do stupid things on prom night? I was really going to have to investigate this further, I decided”
“Two days after my dad’s funeral, my mom went on a mission. I never understood it until then–that sometimes a spy doesn’t need a cover so much as she needs a shield.”
“If you ever wonder whether or not someone is too good for you, I’d advise going through their trash. Really. No one looks superior after that.”
