One night I was coming home and fell on my steps. It knocked my
pointing finger out of joint, it looked terrrrrible! Everyone wanted
to take me to the hospital, but remembering Dirk Pitt, I said "wait a
minute", and I bravely pulled my finger back into place, surprising
and freaking out everyone there! It fell into place perfectly! Very
little swelling the next day, and many kudos from all my friends. I'd
have never even thought to try it if it hadn't been for Dirk Pitt!
I've been in love with Dirk since the first book I read, which I can't
remember the title of. But, it changed my life. I became much braver
and more thoughtful about everything. Thank you Clive Cussler for
creating a character that is so inspiring!
