I am so excited! My Captain just received a transfer to his shift who I absolutely LOVE.
His name is Mike, and he is one of the most interesting characters in this whole entire world, and I’m not prone to exaggeration.
Except on days that end with “y.”
Mike is My Captain’s shift’s newest Firefighter Paramedic, who My Captain most aptly describes as “a true Renaissance Man.”
Mike and I first met years ago in Medic Class, (re: this picture is extremely old and resembles me NOT AT ALL, anymore.)
and we instantly fell into immediate competition. Over Grades. Over Cooking ability. Over Best Hair. (Well….maybe it was one-sided. In all honesty I don’t think he ever gave a rat’s ass about competing with me. But we are talking about the reality in my own little head, and that is INFINITELY more interesting than the truth, now, isn’t it?)
He won the grades challenge.
He won the cooking ability (He’s a trained chef.)
But I won the hair challenge. HA. And I wasn’t even trying!
And though he remains better looking in general, I flatter myself to think that I will always be more photogenic than he is.
But at the end of the day, if I were bleeding, or on fire, he is the one I’d want helping me out. And frankly, I wouldn’t give a damn about his hair.
But I’d still pick on him.
Because I’m bitter about the whole grades and cooking thing.
Welcome to 31, Mike!
