    Career day in Heather's class.<br>
    <br>
    One of the people there works as an emergency dispatcher. During Q&A, a kid asks him what the saddest call was he had. He said two weeks after he started as a dispatcher, an elderly lady who lived on some large acerage near Sandy called 911. Her husband didn't return after working on the land, and she couldn't find him. Later she called and said she found him underneath a tipped over tractor and he wasn't moving, and she didn't know what to do.<br>
    <br>
    Heather's eyes kept getting bigger and bigger. And her friend Kayla is looking at her, watching her reaction. Heather suddenly runs out of the classroom, bawling. The man under the tractor was her grandfather (Valerie's dad).<br>
    <br>
    Oops.<br>
    <br>
    I guess he has ANOTHER sad tale to tell.<br>
    <br>
    Anyway, the teacher sends Heather to the school counselor. She felt better shortly afterwards, it was just the initial shock.<br>
    <br>
    So Heather gets home, calls Valerie on her cell, and tells her the story. Valerie is at a store, and now she's bawling while grocery shopping.<br>
    <br>
    Oops.<br>
    <br>
    By the time I got home it had all blown over.
