One of the great things about having a facebook page for North Shore / South Shore is that I can get immediate feedback when I have questions about the details. One of my favorite facebook conversations was from last summer when my question about the Baptiste’s ethnicity spawned several comments. They are French-American but that didn’t seem tough enough for a family of high-powered dangerous criminals. People suggested I make them part Creole or just make them Irish (but that might entail changing the last name).
Today I asked what kind of car a mobwife should drive. I chose a Mercedes Benz sedan for Denis Baptiste’s wife Erica. And I think it will be white. Like the responses to the Baptiste’s ethnic background, the comments about Erica’s car were entertaining and insightful.
Yes, definitely white. White interior too–because she is obviously high maintenance. White because it one might expect black for a villain. A white car says “My husband just beat his charges. After I pick him up at the courthouse, we going to Whole Foods.”
