“What are we on, Swipe!” Just 15 minutes earlier, these 5 cops were demanding entrance and accusing me of being on drugs. All sorts of drugs! They were convinced I was about to die and that they were going to save me.
I continued to assure them that I was not on drugs. And that they were welcome to wander around and checkout my stockpile of nyquil & zyrtec. They were sold after a few minutes. When calm fell back over the situation, I asked them what happened. A suicide attempt had been called in at my address for a middle aged male.
They spent another 10 minutes waiting on dispatch for a correct address. We made jokes, reflected on the ordeal, and I tried finding my phone to capture a video. I couldn’t find it and thought of that Cameras song by the Freelance Whales. I told them that the other person was probably dead. We all bonded.
What a great way to start the day.
