Just The Notes

Note #825: Extremes

Note #825

The short drive to school includes hitting small pockets of traffic. The voyage involves only four roads. We’re on three of those roads for less than a mile. The rest of the trip is on one heavily traveled roadway.

Some mornings, the fifteen-minute ride takes precisely that amount of time. Other mornings, the ride is extended to 20-35 minutes.

On this morning, we’re at a dead stop in a spot that’s usually traffic-free. Both lanes have shifted over to make room for three fire trucks, two police cruisers, and an ambulance parked on the side of the road.

A band of firefighters and police personnel gathers on the sidewalk, staring up at the rough of a white duplex on the corner.

My youngest asks what’s going on. I venture my best guesses.

“It’s probably a fall alarm, but there might have been a small kitchen fire. Probably nothing.”

My son offered his guess.

“Maybe someone threw a Molotov cocktail through the window.”

At that moment, I was glad the traffic was stopped. It afforded me the time to do an exaggerated sitcom-like head turn to my right.

“What?” he shrugged. “It’s possible.”
