Day From Hell

By Wyatt Earp | May 30, 2006

Someone check to see if there’s a full moon.

6:25am – Woke up five minutes early. Still sore from Sunday’s run. That can’t be a good sign.

7:45am – Arrived at work, only to be informed the three-body burglary/stolen car arrest I spent all day working on was declined by the district attorney. According to the D.A., my story was not sufficient enough for the charges to stick. Three guilty-as-sin juveniles were subsequently let go. Good detective? Not so much.

9:00am – The officers who arrested the cherubs were just informed that they were released. The next ten minutes were spent calming their sergeant down.

11:00am – My second investigation of the day – even though some detectives haven’t gotten their first – involves a homeless man pushing a hospital security guard down a flight of concrete steps. The homeless man gets away, and the guard was being worked on in the trauma unit. It’s just another day in paradise.

12:00pm – Good news, everyone! The wife calls and says we’ll be having our Memorial Day BBQ a day late. On the menu: hot dogs, corn on the cob, and potato salad. Diet be damned!

2:00pm – The boss wants me to submit warrants for the three juveniles, but since I have off on Wednesday and Thursday, it can wait.

4:00pm – I am outta here! There will be brain medicine (read: Guinness) flowing tonight! Especially since it’s 95 degrees in Philly today.

    The moon is “waxing crescent, 14 percent of full.”

    I guess that information does not bode well for the rest of your week.

    Have a good one! :)
