Kids Do the Darnedest Things
Mr. 4-Ever was out of town so
I was alone watching the tornado’s swirling formations on the weather channel
when sirens started blaring their warning.
Outside, the sky was greenish gray and there wasn’t a wisp of wind.
Almost simultaneously, a text notification beeped on my cell phone.
A tornado warning had been issued and my house was in its path.
Suddenly, the back door banged open and
Eli, my firefighter son, burst in calling loudly,
Where are you?”
“I’m in the office, Eli.
What are you doing here?”
“Mom, I heard the warning on my scanner and
I came over to be with you in case you were scared.”
