The Situation is Worse Than You Think

The paramedics leaned over the woman, effectively blocking most of her body from the spectators. Their expressions were calm, but their eyes were concerned.

They worked on stabilizing the patient for nearly 90 seconds before they noticed it: a blood stain on her abdomen. It was growing bigger by the minute.

“Mommy! Wake up! Mommy please!” A little girl, not more than six-years old, screamed. Her voice sent shivers up the spectaculars’ spines. A man held her back so she wouldn’t fling herself on the injured woman.

“She’ll be fine,” one paramedic said out loud.

Their eyes met over the body.

It was a lie.

Favorite “Zits” of the Week

My “comical” life with teenage boys …

I especially laughed at this last one. I mentioned I maintain school websites, right? Well, when a dance rolls around, I am asked to post dance guidelines on the high school websites and the guidelines in this comic? Are exactly what’s on those guidelines. It sort of makes you sick that school officials have to specifically prohibit this crass behavior at a social gathering, doesn’t it. I totally blame reality TV.
