Well, it’s Friday December 15th, this is the last day of the academy. I should be gathering all my stuff from my locker and saying good-bye to all the friends I’ve made. Instead I’m sitting at my computer at home, typing out this email.
Fortunately, I didn’t lose my job. I’m still employed by the Annapolis Fire Department. I have successfully completed the academy and – as the general consensus goes- am the academic leader. I’ve got my station assignment for field training, 36- Eastport, Engine Company. I know my schedule for next year. I’ve got my uniforms and gear, and all that happy stuff.
I’ve also got surgery scheduled for Tuesday December 19th to fix the tripod fracture of the right orbital bone in my face.
No, Mary didn’t haul off and smack me one… Stupid me passed out after getting a shot in the arm and took a header onto the concrete floor. I’m off work at least until Jan 2nd and have a peachy Christmas of swelling and Percocet to look forward to.
