when the doorbell rang last night, i was expecting one of those kids coming to try to sell me a water filter/new windows/a newspaper subscription. every single night someone shows up, asking if my mother’s at home. It really is the best way to get rid of pesky sellers. “no, i’m sorry. my mom is in Wisconsin right now.” hahahahaha! see…sometimes looking 16 has its perks.

instead of someone selling something it was !hello! a smokin’ hot police officer. My lucky day, i thought to myself. and YES, i will buy tickets to the circus. (oh wait…is that the firemen? someone in a uniform always sells me circus tickets….)

“Excuse me Ma’am. Is everything alright?”

“Why yes it is, officer. would you like to come in for a drink?”

“well, someone in your house called 9-1-1. It’s usually an accident…but we have to come out to the house to check it out.”

damnit. to. hell.

josh.

of course it was josh. because he was the one hiding in his room. he needs to work on his poker face. i always know when it’s him.

“I’m so sorry officer. How can i ever make it up to you? I’m sure we can think of something if we put our heads together.”

and like that. he was gone.

you think it was the Annie movie quoting that turned him off? :)

  2. Oh dear! That’s my worst fear – Matt calling 911.
    What did you do?
    And, way to think of a good line. I hope you actually said it!

  4. I guess the good news is, he knows who to call in an emergency. My step-son did this 11 yrs ago too. I don’t think Scott would know to call 9-1-1 .. that is one reason I never taught him it early ..

  6. Ah, Miss Hannigan. She’s my role model.
    My kids have never phoned 911, but The Girl – as a toddler – figured out that interesting things would happen if she picked up the phone and pressed redial. And interesting things did indeed happen.

  7. So been there! Except we had just moved and not updated our address with the phone company soooo our knock came about 2 hours later with a pissed off cop who had to track down our new address. Whoops! Sorry officer, it wasnt my 2 year old, it was his 21 year old father misdialing. At least your cop was hot.

  8. This reminds me of a few years ago. I was in the car with my best friend and her then 13/14 yr old daughter. We drove past a fire hall and both my friend and I, single, said almost simultaneously, “How could we meet some sexy firemen?”…..her daughter, fairly quietly quipped from the back seat, “set your kitchen on fire”.

  9. Sure, sure. JOSH dialed 911. Heck, I’d dial 911 to see if a smokin hot police officer came over. Well, except that they’d probably just send my neighbor, and he’s married. Then again, so am I.

    My fantasies suck.

  11. I accidentally did this. My friends cell is 915-####. I hit the one to many times so I just hung up. About 30 seconds later they called back. I told them I did it on accident. No one came out though…

  12. I dread the day Allie calls 911. My brother used to call them when he was little.

  14. don’t worry. I’m sure that the cop didn’t even get the Annie reference. I, however, LOVED it!!!

  16. you need to get yourself an alarm. I am watching my friends dog and I set off the alarm when I came in to walk him. 5 minutes later, sgt smiley, who I am sure you would have found much hotter then I did.

  19. As a paid 9-1-1 professional, I can tell you we get several of these a day!

    My oldest (now 19) called 9-1-1 to “talk to daddy” one day (when he was about 7 years old). Problem is that home is in a different location that work, and when he dialed 9-1-1, he got a different dispatch center!

    911 what is your emergency?

    Is my daddy there? Can I talk to him?

    Needless to say, I did not get to talk to him until the next day.
