From police files

Date: 20 February 2008
Time: 06:17

Investigating Officer: Sgt. Sean Malarkey
Case Number: 01-00777

Agency: Arlington County Police Department

At 06:14, I was dispatched to the vicinity of Lee-Harrison, in response to a 311 citizen call, reporting an unknown white female, age between 30 and 40, acting erratically. (Response time, est. 3 minutes, v. good.) I found the subject shuffling along the north side of the street, muttering to herself and wearing excessive numbers of fluorescent arm bands. Subject carried no identification, but also was wearing T-shirt that said, "Hartford's Hooker Day Parade 1993." (Note to self: Checked warrants. None pending.)

Subject was extremely red-faced, but no apparent signs of drug use. Attempted to calm subject, but she said, "Can't stop! Leprechauns leap!" At that time, I determined subject posed possible danger to herself and others, and called for transport to VHC. Transferred custody to medics for mental health evaluation.

Probable cause: No charges pending.

(Editor's note: In truth, Auntie Pamela and I are doing fabulously! We're up to 2.5 miles -- including hills! She wants us to register for the 8K Leprechauns Leaps in three weeks. I think that's a little ambitious myself, but we shall see.)

I'm still mostly treadmilling it :) But we're doing awesome! And I think we need to try the Lep. Leap, if only for the t-shirt. We can walk the last mile.

Absolutely. If only for the t-shirt!
