Everyone has that list of things…A bucket list, fantasy list, a list of things you always wanted to do.
Last night I crossed off trying to evade the cops in a high speed pursuit.
OK not really, but let me indulge for a bit.
Code 3 return to the hospital with a person who the police wanted to speak to regarding her crashing her car while intoxicated. Well they chose to follow us in instead of simply meeting us there and it was on like Donkey Kong. I told my partner to hang on (more as a joke, this was all safe people) and went for it. I took a couple of turns wide, opposed traffic in a few places and they stayed right on us, sirens blaring and lights flashing. I would accelerate when safe and imagine I was being chased after some really cool cyber crime from the movies.
But alas, we arrived at the hospital and they let me go.
Wondering what fantasies #1, #2 and #3 are? That’s on a whole different blog my friends.
Disconnecting the bells,
The Happy Medic
