Nothing Ever Happens In A Small Town...Until It Does
Last night, on my way home from work, I stopped at the gas station in my home town. I asked what all the commotion was, because there were several emergency vehicles, including fire trucks, flying into town. The gal at the gas station said she heard there was a hostage situation! I really didn't believe her, because it didn't make sense - why fire trucks?
Well, come to find out, at the exact same time, there was a house fire that they had called for backup from two different communities. The house was right next to a senior citizen complex, so that made sense.
Then, on the outskirts of town, there actually was a supposed hostage situation! This was the staging area for the police and tactical units.
I'll take boredom anyday.
