Fires that is! 

No, I wasn't thrilled to hear John's fire pager go off at 1:30 while I was in the shower. I was even less thrilled to hear that it was a Fire, and I have kids coming at 3:15 so no firefighting for me. 

Johnny texts me "Is there really a fire on maple?" 

then calls me before my cell can even go off. 

"Is there really a fire on Maple?"

"Nope, the road is closed off because the fire police were bored. WTF do you think?"

Well, one he's still at school and waiting for the sport bus to take him the bowling alley for practice. 

"Maybe I shoudl skip practice and go...."

"Um, no."

"Well why not? I didn't get my level 1 for nothing."

"Um because you made a commitment to a team, just like I made a commitment that Logan and Dominic could come over."

SOme more puffing and huffing..... "But I miss all the fires."

"You are 17 yrs old, you have been in the dept for a year (okay, closer to 2), do you think your father is happy to be at work? do you think I was happy to be in the shower? you go to practice, and when you get done there will still be plenty of clean-up needing to be done back at the station for you."
