I was driving down to my parents' house today, and as I was stopped at a light next to the Franktown Fire Department, I couldn't help but notice a group of firefighters setting a couple of cars next to the firehouse on fire. Naturally, I parked as quickly as I could and went to take some pictures.


I saw these cars crash and catch fire, then heroically saved the two kids in the back seat and their single mom. She was so thankful, she couldn't keep her hands off of me! But I just had to force her to sit down while I called the fire department and took these pictures. I wanted to get pictures of the people I saved, but the mother's beauty simply could not be captured due to all the soot and thankful tears.. :)

    The truth is nice, but you missed a good opportunity to gloat about yourself... You know, like how you say this vehicle catch fire. And heroically saved the 2 kids in the back seat, and their single mom was so thankful she couldn't keep her hands off you... but you had to force her to sit down, while you called the fire department, and took these photos. You wanted to get photos of these people you saved, but the mom's Angelina Jolie like looks could not be captured beautifully on digital photos due to all the soot and thankful tears...

    You know, you're right.. I shouldn't be so modest. I've updated the description text to let everyone else know the truth, too. :)

    Truthiness is always the best way to go.
