For The Someday Book

Emergency? Not so much.

Posted on: February 20, 2010

B was playing fire trucks with J this morning. This usually involves crashing a car, followed by the shout of “Oh no! I’m on fire!” Then the fire trucks drive over, raise ladders, rescue people and put out the fire.

This was played over and over several times, until J decided to take some initiative. First he crashed the car, then shouted, “Oh no! I’m on fire! Come and help me!”

To which B replied, “That’s interesting.”

J’s fire truck had to put out his own fire.
