I don't know "who done it," but I have a clue. I went downtown Saturday to see what all the fuss was about. Someone blew a hole in a wall at North American Computer and stole three secret chip codes.
It could have been any number of characters wandering Waukesha for the third Live Clue Adventure. I wasn't playing the game and didn't stick around for the results, but had great fun none-the-less. It looked like everyone was having fun. The weather was great and the game was something different a family or friends could do on a fall Saturday afternoon without much else going on.
I visited Waukesha Tattoo Company @ Galleria Edge where Madam Maroon and Tani Tat were acting clueless. Also took a good look at Waukesha's newest mural in progress on the west side of their building; a unique trompe l'œil. It seems I heard about the mural just a few weeks ago and already it's half done! Also heard it will have hints of Surealist painter Salvador Dali, one of my favorite artists. It's going to be a great addition to Waukesha's art scene.
Anyway, I wandered past Sloppy Joe's without really knowing what clues I'd be looking for - but guessed the chips weren't in the ice cream. After a good time with Mademoiselle Star Isbourne at the Waukesha County Museum I felt I had to see what supposedly happened at 3:00 in the morning.
North American was just a pile of computer parts, wood and crime scene tape, but crossing the street to Cookies Galore I encountered Joltin Ginger Snap and my friend Dr. Blaze Orange. I suspected Dr. O. did it because it's always the person you least expect. Or maybe it was Mlle. Star's facebook flappers. After all, they had motive.
The good Dr. O. suggested I pick up some delicious cookies before leaving, as long as I was there. I bought a chocolate-covered oreo and a couple triple chip cookies. The cookies had milk chocolate, semi sweet and vanilla chips in them and were very good.
In hindsight I felt the best hiding place for the missing chip codes would be in the cookies at Cookies Galore. I still don't know who did it. Maybe someone having access to Cookies Galore?
Please comment if you know who did it or where the codes ended up. Thanks.
