9 1 1 Emergency
So, you know when you're watching one of those cop dramas where someone's screaming and all of the neighbors heard it, but no one did anything or knew what to do? Yeah. Last night, that neighbor was me. It was the weirdest thing because I always thought I'd be the one to jump into action, but when it actually happened, I had no idea what to do. There I was, sitting at the computer around 11 p.m., when I heard some people arguing and the voices getting louder. Suddenly the lady started shouting, "Someone help us! He's been stabbed!" I froze. What do you do? Other than the police, who do you call? What if there are bad people out there and then they stab you? I didn't even know if I should call the police because I didn't want retrobution. What is wrong with me? I'm horrified by my lack of action. Luckily I heard my neighbor run down the stairs and out to help, so I felt better. Shortly thereafter the cops and firemen came, as well, so it all worked out, but still. I guess someone did get stabbed down the street (side note: I live in a nice area by the beach, so it's not like there are gangs or anything around. I think it was a fluke). In other news that sucks, my dad has a really bad cold and now it seems to have been given back to me. In a classic chicken-and-the-egg scenario, did I give him the cold originally, or did he get it and give it back to me? I guess we'll never know. In the meantime, let's hope mine doesn't advance to the stage of suckiness his is at.
