What are the odds, I ask you! Our 1 1/2 year old baby K- somehow got ahold of the portable phone this evening and before we could retrieve it, she’d dialed
9 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
Which just so happens triggers the emergency system here in Colorado. Linda hung the phone up immediately and told me “the baby just dialed 911 but I hung up before it connected”
Ah, well, no she didn’t….
In fact, about 90 seconds later the Police Department called to check on the distress call and I explained that it was our baby making a desparate plea for help, uh, um, randomly pushing buttons on the phone and somehow dialing 911. All was well.
Not 60 seconds after that, there’s a knock on the door.
A member of the police department stood there when I opened the door, wanting to ensure that all was well. I explained our story again, of course, and just by coincidence K- comes toddling up to see what’s going on.
I couldn’t resist, I introduced her as “the perpetrator.”
