Just got off the phone with my Firefighter. After the conversation ended, I began to think back on similar calls.
Its rather strange to be the wife of a fireman. You find yourself saying things like:
“Oh, that great dear! Im glad you got to fight that fire even though the house burned to the ground.”
And then after that you say:
“I hope they have good insurance.”
You also say things like:
“Oh, gee dear. Im so glad you got to run that call where that person died 3 times.”
Are you scratching you head?
Sometimes when I hear myself, I say, “What did I just say?”
I dont want someone’s house to burn down or a family member to die.
However, my husband has this thing for bringing people back from the flat line, and walking into hot furnaces.
