This would be an esteemed member of our town's RCMP detachment. He is multi-tasking. All Canadians are excellent Multi-taskers.
Playing hockey with the neighborhood kids shows them that Police Officers are not someone to be scared of, but someone to look up to. He is also waiting for the Tow Truck to remove two hunks of metal.
What Hunks of metal? Oh see, I was fooling around on the net (As Usual)(It's what I do) when I heard a VERY loud Bang. Knowing the sound was that of a vehicle hitting something, and that my Seven year old was on the street roller blading, I hopped up fast enough to tip over my chair. I will admit to being worried he was the something.
Lucky for me, but unlucky for the nice older man in the greeny blue truck, it was the annoying teenager with loud music and a louder exhaust who loves to cruise up and down the streets squealing his little sports car tires and ignoring all stop signs.
Said annoying teenager, who's axle is busted, is gonna look pretty silly when his momma drives him to school in the morning.
Both drivers are OK, in fact the Older man in the greeny blue truck walked home (Did I mention small town?) At first, his truck started, and ran long enough to get it more to the side of the road, but when it started smoking, he wisely decided to let it sit in waiting for the Tow Truck.
The annoying teenager who, while speeding, blew the stop sign? He got to ride in the very comfortable backseat of the police cruiser.
And so, another exciting evening passed on our street. Ever single one of us, from the first bang to the last vehicle towed, stood around outside and gossiped.
Dontcha wish your life was a lot like mine? Dontcha? Dontcha?
