A Busy Mornin'
So I was downstairs helping Eli with one of his Nintendo DS games... Jeb and Elkan were upstairs playing MarioKarts. Yes... Elkan plays MarioKarts. All was well until I heard Jeb yell from upstairs.
"Daddy. Elkan called the lady on the phone and she says now the police have to come to our house."
So of course I assume I didn't hear what I obviously heard and run upstairs hoping I was mistook.
"What's going on buddy?"
"Well... Elkan called the lady and he's talking to her and she said now the police have to come to our house. ***sigh*** little brothers..."
It was at this point that I heard Elkan still chattering away in his bedroom. I rushed in there and found him giving some poor woman a very stern lecture about something that was clearly extremely important. I grabbed the phone... hoping no one was there.
"Oh hi! This is Julie and the ER. Your baby called us and he's just been talking up a storm."
"We didn't know what was going on so we had to call the police to come check."
"... errr... sorry?"
"Oh its ok.. he's adorable. I can't believe he dialed this number though."
"I can't either. So he didn't dial 911 then?"
"No this is the unpublished ER number."
"I know. I don't know how he managed it!"
Well... I eventually got off the phone with her. Turns out Julie had been on call and got paged to the ER a couple days before and Elkan had simply pressed redial.
At least the cops took their time showing up. The local chief of police, a buddy of mine named Brian, showed up about 30 minutes later. "Havin' a good mornin' Nate?"
"Its great Brian. Thanks."
"hehehe.. I told 'em everything was ok... That baby just tryin' to find his mama."
Its a good thing we live in Mayberry.
