I Object Your Honor!

Daily Prompt:  Object – Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.

Remember Perry Mason?  I loved that show … Perry and his sidekicks Della Street and Paul Drake and his nemesis, District Attorney Hamilton Burger.

Before their trial was over I knew he would unmask the real villain and thoroughly humiliate Hamilton Burger.

I had trouble, though, when Perry stood up to object.  The judge would either “overrule” or “sustain” the motion and, because I didn’t know what those words meant, I never knew if it was a good thing or not for Perry’s case.  But, of course, the best part was when the real murderer collapsed on the stand and confessed.

What an innocent age we lived in then.  We knew Perry Mason would save the day.

Oh wait, that was Mighty Mouse.
