Where’s Waldo?

Sittin’ here looking around on the internet and I notice flashing red lights outside the front window.

Two ambulances and a fire truck out in front of the apartment complex next door.

Six or so EMTs and firemen are walking around the front of the apartment building with flashlights out, looking in the bushes, and carrying a stretcher. 

They walked around the side of the building, right into my side yard.  They were back there for about 5 minutes, came out with an empty stretcher and left.

I desperately wanted to go back there and ask what was going on.  Not because I was concerned about them walking around on my property, but because I’m curious.

If it had been a bunch of cops I probably would have felt differently.  Probably would have gone in the house, locked the doors, hid under the bed and waited for the gun fire to start when they cornered the dangerous fugitive they were looking for. (Gotta stop watching Flashpoint).

Either way, I didn’t think it was a good idea to confront them in a dark side yard while they are doing their job.  So I sat on the neighbor’s front lawn talking to him as we watched it all unfold.

I’d like to know what it was all about…

I think they may have gotten a call that an alien space ship landed and there was a wounded lost little green man under the bushes! Just saying..... :)

I like it! I'm going with that story, and since I read it on the internet, it has to be true.

That is weird. Well, at least it wasn't you they were there for -- and since they were there with a stretcher, that HAS to be a good thing!
