As the clock strikes 12...

A post by a friend on facebook has started a discussion. Where have you been when the clock struck midnight on New Year's Eve? As members of the emergency services, of whichever variety, the options are endless, and have so far included a padded cell whilst covered in all manner of unpleasantness. Mine have ranged from being mid-resuscitation of a pedestrian hit by a drunk driver, to the far more sedate call of assisting an octogenarian off the floor just in time for him to celebrate with his traditional glass of sherry. 

So, as we head into the new year, and as many of you will be out there protecting and serving the public, let's start the party early: 

Where is the strangest, funniest, weirdest, scariest or any-other-est place that you have been as Cinderella turned back into a pumpkin after attending her New Year's Eve ball? Or something. 

To all of you, whether you're going out with friends or having a quiet time at home, whether partying or protecting, and especially if you happen to be able to manage both at once, stay safe and have a good one!

Playing indoor cricket with the Doctors and Nurses of a tiny, quiet ED in a community hospital. We brought a patient in who promptly self-discharged b/c they "didn't like the look of the doctor". After writing our report and surprisingly being told we weren't needed out anywhere again we joined in with the doctors team, batting with a pillowcase wrapped very taut around a child size crutch.
