    Crazy life we lead...

    I have been graced with my in-laws last week and my parents this week in my house. Plus all the usual madness and insanity that comes with the job. As I have gone through this week, I have become sleep deprived, dehydrated, pissy (MIL does that to me everytime), and worn mentally. Through it all though, I have kind of realized a few things and I am going to share them, whether you like it or not:

    (1) Cops are cops. We are a big family and just like every family, we may fight amongst ourselves, but God forbid if anyone else does. Even stretches across the sea (thanks, Falcata).
    (2) The man that I looked up to my whole life (and still do in a lot of ways) now looks up at me. With pride. (Pop)
    (3) As crazy as life gets, sitting down with a few other cops and exchanging some funny stories about the stupidity we deal with makes some things okay again for awhile.
    (4) Being told by a little black kid that he wants to be like you (white bald honky) when you are answering a domestic at his house, gives me a good feeling.
    (5) Leading parades sucks.
    (6) Being told that the boss just ordered the Hemi's gives you wood a cat can't scratch.
    (7) Eating, sleeping, working leaves little time for working out, hence I am getting fat.
    (8) I am extremely tired of stupid people coming to this site and saying dumb things and me reading it to the detriment of my already fragile mind. Jeez, I deal with the dumb people all day. Why are they following me???
    (9) I have the coolest job in the world
    (10) No offense to the people from other countries, but... I live in the greatest country out there. Bar none.

    Okay. I am done and I am going to bed so my wife can wake me up at 6:30 am to run. Yay for me.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    My TO warned me that the downside to this job, is that some things regular people just won't get - and there is no use trying to tell them.

    One of the things I love about here, is there are people who "get it," and I appreciate them letting me vent when needed.
