Well, it was about as bad as I thought it might be, but nowhere as bad as I'd feared it would be. Six house with no KP, no Walleye, no Anakin.... just me and the Menace and Miz Trainwreck.
Sgt Uncle T and St Francis got to be life savers twice tonight. Once right after shift change some inmate in our house slipped coming out of the shower and fell flat on his back. I didn't see it but I heard him hit over the intercom. It was a pretty meaty thump and when i looked there was nobody near him so I know he didn't get thumped by someone else.
Sent the Menace and Trainwreck in there and they called the code 16. Sgt Uncle T and St Francis showed up to direct traffic and help get the guy on a stretcher. They ended up keeping him in medical over night so I guess it was legit.
Then, after I had been alone with those two all night, Sarge and the Saint showed up right before count to keep me company and help me decompress for about an hour.
Man, did I need that! I was close to falling on the floor and gnawing my own foot off. And I suspect my brain was about to chew it's way out through my ear to escape.
Thanks guys. You saved me.
I have been looking forward to tomorrow for a long time. It's Everything You Do Is Right Day.
Gawd, I hope it's true.
