If you don't live here, let me tell you, you've never heard so many sirens in your life. There is always an ambulance or fire engine, or police car passing by.
I think I always knew that there were a lot of police cars in the city, but I'm even more aware of them now, because Jordan loves them so much.
Sometimes police officers will see us gawking and will turn on the lights. It's like magic to Jordan.
So the other night Nick and I were out for a walk, stopped at a light at a big intersection. A cop car turned on its siren, sped through the light and down the street. It was really going fast.
It occurred to me that I would never be able to drive that fast in city traffic. I seriously can't imagine.
Which prompted me to say, "Wow. Do you think they get some kind of training in driving that fast?"
These are the kinds of questions that make Nick all sarcastic and all, "No. No training. I think they just say, 'Go ahead, drive this car as fast as you want! Turn on the siren if you want and just have fun with it!'"
