You know, it’s hard to save the world when you can’t find a babysitter. Not that I became a cop to save the world, but I did expect that maybe I’d make my corner of it a better place. I used to add, “Or die trying,” but my sister informed me it wasn’t funny. Of course, after our mother and father died and I became her only living blood relative and now guardian, she didn’t think much of anything was funny unless she was behind it.
If Cali sees or hears anything about our parents, it’s a sure bet I’ll be getting a call from the school some time that day saying that Cali is acting out.
Like that’s a surprise.
So she acts out.
That’s what the school shrink calls it, anyway....
