A Home Electronic Emergency!!
This didn't happen to me. But it's funny enough that I had to mention it.
I was talking to a friend of mine today, at our kids' ball game. He tells me he had uninvited company last night.
His two boys (ages 9 and 7) had been messing around in their family room, and the older child bumped into something which made the power to the television go out.
That's quite a problem, isn't it?
Obviously, the seven-year-old thought so. Since he yells, "We need some help!!"...
...and dials 911.
My friend got to the phone in time to tell the 911 people that there wasn't really a problem, but they sent the police there to check things out anyway.
Oh well, at least it's cheap entertainment for the neighbours!
As we were chatting about that at the ball game today, someone says to me, "You have five kids. You mean that NONE of them has ever called 911?"
Which they haven't.
Knock wood fast. So I don't jinx us.
