OK, people who do good deeds are driven to do them, and usually for personal reasons - and in some way, all self-serving. Donating to a group to assuage guilt for the death of a loved one, adrenalin junkies, being surrounded by men/women, whatever. People are human, and we are driven for reasons, not just pure, unadulterated generosity. Mostly I'm driven by adrenalin, but I'm not one to pass up the company of men!
And EMS is full of men.
We love EMS. We love what we do. We love telling war stories. We confide in each other. When I joined the squad I went from being an only child to having a unique set of brothers and sisters and friends. There are always some points of friction... there are some people we may not like, but we all get passed most of it to do the job. And we all help each other through the weird stuff.
And then there are the men.
Today we went with Parsippany's Rescue & Recovery to do a diving drill. There were six divers and four of them were hot! Hot, hot, hot, hot, hot! And what's better than a hot man? A hot man in a WET SUIT!
I know, I'm a dog.
