I woke up this morning to the sound of helicopters outside my bedroom window. There were two just hovering over the back of my townhouse development. I thought there might have been an accident on Route 1.
Later on, as I was walking Barry, one of the kids waiting for the school bus was taking pictures of the choppers with his cell phone. That's when I noticed the police tape.
What the hell? There was a police car parked in front of the tape. I asked what was going on, but he got all coy. "You gotta watch the news."
"Is is bad?"
He just shrugged and gave me a goofy look. DAMN! I want to know these things.
So I hurried Barry along and as soon and he pooped, I turned him back to go home. I went from local news channel to local news channel hoping to find some of the aerial shots, or at least a story of what was going on. Nothing. I went online to the local news stations and the local paper for any breaking story developments. Nothing.
This is going to bother me all day? Is there a bear on the loose? A psycho killer? Is there a body found along the creek?
Must. Find. Out.
