The best defense is a good offense
how could the best defense to be its opposite? i'm going to use part of a story i read from a book called "Deception Point" by Dan Brown to demonstrate what the sentence mean. here it goes:
a beautiful girl called Gabrielle with the right sex-appeal works for the senator where they ended up having sex in his office ( sounds like bill's story). Nonetheless, one day gabrielle sneaked to the senator's office in the middle of the night to get some information she needs. she used the ventilator that connects the public toilet with the senator's restroom. while she is in the senator's office, the senator called her on the cell phone. Gabrielle decided to answer and told him that she is in HER office doing some paper. the senator didn't believe her when he heard the distinctive triple-click of his jordanian clock in the background. all he could imagine is that gabrielle entered his office without his permission. "how the hell did she get into my office" he prompted. so the senator headed as fast as he can to his office. when he arrived, the senator typed in the code to deactivate the alarm. then he opened the door and burst in, intent on catching Gabrielle in the act. but the office was empty and dark. Gabbrielle had left before the senator interred from the location were she dropt. the senator heard a flush in the public rest room. so he spun there and saw Gabrielle. she jumped when she saw him.
"my God! you scared me!" she said, looking genuinely frightened. "what are you doing here" he said. " getting some documents as i told u in the phone" she said.
He stared directly into her eyes. " Were you in my office?"..
Now, with the senator standing before her, staring down, she sensed him searching her eyes for a lie. "you've been drinking" Gabrielle said, turning away. how does he know i was in his office?
"in your office?" she demanded, forcing a confused laugh. "How? Why?".
"I heard my Jourdian in the back ground when i called you, i spent all day in that office. i know what my clock sounds like" he said.
Gabrielle sensed that she had to end this immediately. The best defense is a good offense. Gabrielle went to him with she had. she stepped toward him, getting in his face, glaring. "let me get this straight, senator. it's midnight, you've been drinking, you heard a ticking on your phone, and that's why your here?" she pointed her finger indignantly down the hall at his door. " just for the record, are you accusing me of disarming a federal alarm system, picking two sets of locks, breaking into your office, being stupid enough to answer my cell phone while in the process of committing a felony, rearming the alarm system on my way out, and then calmly using the ladies' room before i run off with nothing to show for it? is that the story here?"
the senator thought that this had never happened to him before-being so sure, and being so wrong. the senator was a man who trusted his instincts, now his instincts told him Gabrielle had been in his office. but he is convinced that his instincts were wrong.
Gabrielle's way of defense, is to proof him wrong regardless of whose right or wrong . She defended her felony by using a good offense, and it worked.
