Overheard in Rescue 1

“Are you okay?”
“Yeah, why?”
“Because you just saw a dead lady.”
“I think I’m going to see a lot more.”

“So, you ok?”
“Does it always smell so bad.”
“Not always.”
“She didn’t look peaceful, do they always look like that?”
“Nah, sometimes they just look like they’re asleep.”
“How long was she dead?”
“Couple days, I guess.”

“You’re going to see things other people can’t imagine. It isn’t easy. When it gets easy, its time to go.”
“I’ve seen dead people, but they were cleaned up and in a casket.”
“They’ll clean that lady up.”
“It’s weird, the way her mouth was wide open, like she was trying to scream.”
“That was probably rigor mortis, she died in her sleep, the body does weird things once the spirit leaves.”
“You think she had a spirit?”
“Of course I do, can’t figure why we’d be here if there’s no spirit.”

“You okay?”
“Yeah, probably gonna see a lot more dead people.”
“It’s never easy.”
“When it gets easy its time to go?”
“Its one of the signs. You have to know when enough is enough.”

What’s better than giving good advice to a new guy?
Getting good advice when you’re a new guy.

It’s getting easier.
