As part of the Spynosaur blog tour, I am pleased to welcome author, Guy Bass onto the blog to give us tips on how to spot our arch-nemesis.
Be it super-spy or otherwise, if you’re planning to be any kind of hero you’ll probably end up with an arch nemesis. But even if you don’t make a career out of saving the world, you still have to be on the lookout – someone might have chosen to be your arch-enemy and not even bothered to tell you. Here are a few handy tips to help you spot your arch-nemesis:
1. FROM A VIEW TO A KILL
Do you feel like you’re being watched? Does a hateful gaze burn into the back of your head? Beware that stare. It could be the first sign that someone has set their sights on you and decided to make your life a misery, arch-nemesis style. Try growing eyes in the back of your head.
2. YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE
Did someone push you off a cliff and then claim it was an accident? Did they drive a tank through your house and then claim they got the wrong address? Did they charge you Payment Protection Insurance without asking and then claim it was an innocent mistake? Yeah, chances are a) they’re fibbing, and b) they’re your arch-nemesis.
3. FOR YOUR EYES ONLY
Arch-nemeses tend to fixate on a single enemy – and you need to know if that enemy is you! If someone has good things to say about everyone except you, it might not mean you’re a horrible person. It might mean that someone has decided to do everything in their power to demean, disgrace, degrade, demolish and destroy you.
Or you might be a horrible person.
4. DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER
Being a full-time arch-nemesis is expensive. If you find yourself receiving “surprise presents” in the post, this may be a sign you’re being targeted by your worst enemy. Galling gifts may include:
- A poison pen letter, covered in actual poison
- A bullet with your name on it
- A bomb with your face on it
- An cake filled with a bomb, with your face on it
- A venomous cobra filled with a cake filled with a bomb, filled with a bullet with your face and name and another cobra on it… which explodes.
Some very handy tips there. I shall definitely be keeping my eyes open and staying alert!
