Fun at the Mall...

Living beside the World's Largest Mall can be fun sometimes. After a work day like I have had, I deserve some fun.

Today at work, just when we thought the work day was over, a call comes in from the U of A hospital. A suicidal male with a gun. 4:00 in the afternoon, and the entire university is about to go home. So everyone has to help out, people have to be emailed so they know not to leave certain buildings by certain entrances, traffic has to be re routed, buses need to be stopped. EPS has snipers on the rooftops, just in case. It was an odd time of morbid excitement mixed in with geniune serious concern. I was just thinking it might actually end well when over the radio a voice said "shots fired in the hospital bay." And then it was over, done, resolved.

Life's like that sometimes.
