"MERELY A FLESH WOUND" ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Folks breathed a collective sigh of relief this morning as a local Emergency Medical Technician brought us up-to-speed on the latest "brush with death" at 7th and Montana. Evidently, just days after the grisly discovery of a corpse in our midst, a local pedestrian was struck by a car. "Fortunately, it wasn't anything major," I overheard the EMT explaining to an attractive young woman, "This guy was just hit by a car, that's all." I couldn't resist interjecting. "Did I just hear you say someone was hit by a car?!?," I asked. The EMT looked at me suspiciously. "Yes, but it just grazed him, that's all," he replied, "He was obviously a drunk, unsteady on his feet ... He said all he needed to steady himself would be a pint of whiskey!" Is it my imagination, or is Our Favorite Starbucks fast becoming a Half Caff Halfway House ...?

If I were hit by a car, I think I'd resent it if someone said "that's all."

Kind of cavalier, dontchathink? "Just got hit by a car", is still getting hit by a car!

I'm more conserned with the fact that no one seem to give a good G-D simply because the guy might be drunk!

This EMT or whatever, where's he coming from anyway?

Drunk or no, the man is still a human being. I wouldn't wish to have that EMT working on me.

It wouldn't surprise me. Coffee is the elixir of sanity when trying to sober up. (Hugs)Indigo
