Before I even get my coat off
for the start of a work week
you're calling me,
and insisting that I mail you a rape kit?
We're supposed to be on the same team, pal -
or hadn't you heard?
Police and hospitals
to protect kids!
We don't try to throw each other under a bus -
or tell them to do something so patently stupid.
Have you ever heard of chain of custody?
Maybe mailing critical evidence works for adults
when you have a witness
who can speak for themselves
on the stand...
but not for a 2 yr old rape victim
who had to go the OR
for surgical repair.
You don't take a chance on the only evidence
you may have collected!
Oh, and threatening
to report me to the States Attorney?
I'm 6o+ yrs old -
do you honestly think I give a rats ass
about some black mark
"on my permanent record"?
Not since grade school, honey!
Coming home to these
redeemed the day!
How can you be in a bad mood
when you have roses in the house?
