The Tell-Tale Heart.

The Mystery Woman is excited about the news that hackers can tap into pacemaker/defibrilators like the one I sport.

“It’s just another way the Internet has improved our lives,” she says with a gleam in her eye. Besides, with the right software, she thinks she can use my pacemaker to make a free phone call her granddaughter in Miami. “Sit up straight,” she grins as she shouts into my bad ear.

I’m scheduled to get a new battery next month. Coincidence?

If the FBI is tapping my heart, I will stipulate – it beats faster whenever Katie Couric is on the screen. More so with the sound turned off, leaving me to imagine what she is saying.

My heart also beats faster every time I eat at Cooper’s BBQ in Llano. And of course, Homeland Security can track my movements easier now.

Imagine the possibilities unleashed by hacking into pacemakers. (Pun alert). The movie mystery plots will be absolutely shocking. Coming soon to a theater near you “The Tell-Tale Heart.”

Hear that? Edgar Allen Poe. Laughing.
