Bombs Away !

"Attention all units," blared the radio, "We have a medical emergency, building X. Patient has fainted." As is my custom, I headed off to assist.

The patient was conscious, and had a previous history of seizures. As a precaution, I held her head in place, and used my very limited Spanish to ask her some questions. A witness came forward, and I asked him if she had hit her head when she went down. He reported that she hadn't. But still, better to be safe than sorry, so I continued holding her head in place.

The Fire Department arrived, and also asked the witness if the patient had hit her head. He explained that she had been walking around like a zombie, then had sat down and flopped over. The Fire Department, unsure as to what that meant, asked the witness for clarification.

"Here, let me show you," he said.

Before the Fire Department could protest, he threw himself fiercely to the ground, ass-first, then flopped over like a dead fish.

Greeeeeeeat. Luckily he didn't injure himself with this fantastic rendition of a 71-year-old woman having an epileptic event. It seemed like a few screws were already loose in his head to begin with. They didn't need to be rattled any further.

"Thank you for showing us that," the Fire Department said, "But please. Don't ever do that again."

"Oh. Ok."
