Lessons In Texting

Dear CA Cop,

I really appreciate that when you were running 4+ hours late the other night you took the first moment you had to text me. It really means a lot.  You know I worry about you, honey.

Just a little helpful tip.  Under similar circumstances in the future, I would greatly appreciate it if you could please refrain from making the first line of the first contact we've had in over 7 hours be "I'm in the hospital".

Even though you so kindly went on to explain that you were waiting on a victim.  I nearly had to pick myself up off the floor. For future reference I have compiled a list of suggested alternatives to "I'm in the hospital". Please use freely and apply substitutions when/where necessary:

#1.) I'm with a rape victim waiting at the hospital. Don't know when I'll be home.
#2.) Waiting with rape victim at hospital. Not sure when I'll be done.
#3.) Going to be a long night. Just waiting on a victim to be checked at hospital.

Again, thank you so much for the text. You were definitely missed sorry it was such a very long night. You were exhausted.

With Love,
CA Cop Wife
