I’ve got some distressing news. I won’t sugarcoat it. The firefighters are gone.
Those hunky, super hero guys who spent more than 24 hours protecting my home front, have just vanished.
Instead the city has built this, ginormous scaffolding, to shield me and my neighbors from flying construction debris.
Look, I appreciate the effort and the construction guys are nice and all, but can you just send back those firefighters? What do you mean they can’t just hang out on my block all day? They have to FIGHT FIRES?!
I guess that’s a somewhat valid point. Sort of.
Even my babysitter Kira admitted to feeling a dash melancholy over their departure.
My husband Rick…. not nearly as sad.
But judging from everyone’s comments on my previous post, apparently I’m not the only one with firefighter lust. How much action must these guys get? Particularly, when they go out for a beer with their friends at a local bar and just can’t find a single moment to change out of their gear (just like those Wall Street boys who never change out of their suits). No witty, smart pick-up lines needed. Got a helmet? Here are my digits.
You know who else seems to be getting a lot of action – the Governor of New York. Turns out very married Governor Eliot Spitzer is allegedly involved in a prostitution ring in which he paid $4,300 for a couple hours with a prostitute.
Does that seem to be a bit steep? $4,300 DOLLARS. For 2 hours.
How about a nice trip to Europe?
Or maybe a down payment on a Mini Cooper?
But all that cash for a hooker? Plus, destroying your political career AND your marriage. Oh Eliot. So not worth it my man. And now your poor wife has to be the subject of endless, “Will she leave him or not?” speculation.
So with the firefighters gone and Governor Spitzer most likely to follow, there’s nothing for me to do but focus on Color Day at Dylan’s preschool.
I know you’re dying to know so I won’t wait any longer….
Today’s color was YELLOW. Go yellow. Go yellow. Can’t stop you. You’re too yellow.
So Dylan wore…. all BLUE.
When I inquired why, she explained that she does not like the color yellow but would be happy to participate in blue day or green day or pink day.
Got it girl. No problem. Yellow washes me out too.
