harmony once again has been restored to the universe
Recently, in the middle of the night, HF almost died. He was turning through an intersection when a big truck went barreling through the stoplight, almost crashing into the side of HF's patrol car. Before HF even lit him up (look at me talking like a cop) the driver pulled over and came to a stop. When HF approached, he had his ID and registration ready to go, and was apologizing profusely. HF noticed that he had a bag of Buffalo wings and a crockpot on the seat of his truck. Turns out he was a firefighter on his way to work and wasn't paying attention to how fast and where he was driving. HF also recognized him right off as one of the guys that had responded when I had broken my ankle last year while I was pregnant. Long story short, HF decided to let him go. The firefighter was completely shocked and confused. He was expecting the worst. He said, "I'll try and remember to repay you in the future!" HF said "you already have" as he walked back to the warmth of his car.
