February 21, 2015

On my first patrol of 2015, I patrolled Plymouth Center.  It was snowy but not enough to cause a major storm, lucky for us.  I walked with minimal gear, for I felt it was mostly for pushing cars or helping others in the snow.  All was relatively quiet.  I managed to make a turn near the Old Post Office and went down a street.  A girl in an old-school New England Patriots wool hat walked by.  I was going to head back and turn around, but since she was going in that direction, I continued to walk down so not to arouse suspicion.  A couple of young men looked at me, but I wasn't sure if they were suspicious.  I played indifference so not to over think it.  I walked down North Street.  I passed some adults as they were walking with their heads down and hoods of their jackets up.  I got out of their way, probably not used to the weather, or way too tired for it.  I also walked down Memorial Drive.  I passed a bus stop where IU noticed a piece of cardboard and a bus ticket.  I was going to return it, but I noticed it expired on the 18th, a few days before today's date.  So I discarded the ticket.  I noticed the parking lot at the Chinese Restaurant, "The Sun Dynasty" was relatively blank.  I managed to get back on the path left abandoned by snow, with the drops tasted of salt.
I know it wasn't Boston but I want to let you know something.  I love being a real life super hero and any experience I have is always a great one, ready for action.  I look forward to my next action.  I really do love my job!!!
