    And life will NEVER be the same. This I promise. Call me when the time comes. I'll be of absolutely no use whatsoever, but you'll have somebody to talk to.

    "Special" here, too. And don't poke him! He's "sensitive."

    No kids here, I got self induced blanks...

    But I remember some advice I got years ago when I was contemplating having kids.

    "If you have a girl she'll bring boys home, but if you have a boy he'll bring the cops home - which do you want?"

    "If you have a girl she'll bring boys home, but if you have a boy he'll bring the cops home - which do you want?"
    That reminds me of a funny story... My boy two at the time, already brought the cops home.

    I was working 3rd shift as was at home in a dead sleep. My wife was making his lunch (PB&J of course). All of a sudden, the doorbell rang, dogs went nuts and I woke up. I didnt get out of bed just yet, I assumed it was a pesky coupon salesman. Then I heard strange voices in my living room. I went downstairs to see what was up, and there was two officers talking to my wife. My boy was excited that I was up, and had to tell me something super important.
    I knew the two officers fairly well, we work together often. (I work in the next town over) They explained that they got a 911 hangup, and needed to check things out. I of course knew the drill and gave them the nickle tour of my house so they can see I hadnt killed anybody. (dressed in a pair of running shorts)
    When the tour was over, it was time to get to the bottom of what happened. My boy couldnt contain himself any longer and blurted out proudly " Daddy, it worked! Mommy was making lunch, and I wanted to eat lunch with the policemen. I called 911 so the policeman would come. You said if I called 911, a policeman will come over!"
    Well they did come over, and since they happened to be friends of mine, they ate some PB&J with us. We had a long talk about 911 and whats its for, he still brings it up often.
    I still get made fun of at work about it.

    Too funny. I know all the folks assigned to my zone, but so far, no surprise 911 responses. Knock on wood.

    My daughter (3 at the time) called 911. Funniest part was she was at the in laws house and my father in law was a dispatcher at the time.
    now my girls are 10 and 12. Looks like the trouble is starting for me. Lots of attitude to deal with.

    I'm still at work...does that count as being out and about doing fun exciting things?

    My kids haven't called 911 (yet)..but my wife did take my son to Walgreen's this morning to pick a few things up, he thought they went to go shopping for Father's day, so as soon as they got into the store, he says (in your typical, loud 3 year old voice) "Let's buy Daddy a gun!"... too bad that a) they don't sell decent guns at Walgreen's, and B) the budget just isn't there for another weapon right now...

    Sixto it could have been worse. We had a female officers daughter turn her portable on and key up and say " Mommy needs help!"
    Fortunately ( or maybe not) we got a good identifier. No answer on the air, no answer on home phone. Fortunately her apartment door was unlocked. (She was expecting her boyfriend) She had half a shift inside her apartment when she stepped out of the shower!

    Well, at least it keeps me out of trouble.
