Well that was strange, as I was giving someone my mobile and home number, registering for another curious seminar in a few weeks. The lady got back to me and said I forgot a digit on my mobile, and so I did and it was zero, then she gets back to me and goes um, you forgot a digit on your home number, and I go so I did, it was zero too. That's the first time that's happened like that, ah well. I took the last of some kind of nutritional powder and I was keen to finish it and it overwhelmed me, I took too much and am spaced out.
Sigh... My mom just told me to make sure and not over eat on healthy stuff.... Really mom? Because so far I've had a yogurt and eating a banana now... Pretty sure I'm in the under eating range right now.
last night at the jail one of the inmates told me he wanted to kill himself. I asked him why he would want to do that to him self. He said the others wanted to kill him and that he would rather do it him self. I moved him to an isolation cell with a camera in it. I watched for 3 hours as he slapped himself and yelled at "the others". I couldn't take it anymore and I walked into the cell, He ran to the corner and put his hands in front of his face and said "are you going to hurt me?" I told him that I just wanted to talk, but he still wouldn't look at me, he would say "please just make it quick" I kneeled down and told him I swore an oath when I became a Deputy Jailer, and that not only do I protect the outside world from inmates, but I protect the inmates as well. He still didn't trust me, and he stilled feared for his life. I then asked him "Do you know what I do when I am not at the jail?" He responded with a tear filled no. I told him that I was a firefighter and I help and protect people at that job too. He lowered his hands and said "really?" I went on telling him about how all my life I have felt the need to help others and there was no way I was going to hurt him, or let anyone else harm him. He started to cry and he then hugged me. That was a very interesting day at the Jail.
"I put the fires out."
"you made them worse."
