What can YOU say in six sentences?
The TV crew arrived before the fire department. They drove up in a little white van with a big satellite dish and a bunch of little antennae stickin’ out of the front, that make the whole thing look like a giant metal whiskered cat with a hat on. Then the ambulance, a fire truck, and seven cop cars arrived. The scene looked like it was a public workers convention.
A lady reporter from the TV crew came over to me an Buddy and asked us our names, and what happened? But before we could tell her what happened, a guy run up from behind her and said, “I saw the whole thing, and all I know is that if it wasn’t for these two guys here, that guy in the car would be charred darker than an extra-well-done T-bone steak.”
The guy was so excited that he started telling all kinds of details to the blonde reporter (who, by the way, I think was making eye’s at ME) and me and Buddy kinda just listed for a while and then simultaneously started to slowly slink out of the scene—walking backward, so no one would notice-- and climbed into our truck.
