I spent Saturday morning hanging out with my coworkers, the NewsVroom and a man dressed as Santa Claus at the Boy Scout Troop 94 pancake breakfast in the Shiloh Fire Hall.
Trust me, anyone who was anyone and was on social media between 7 a.m. and noon that day knew without a shadow of a doubt that A PANCAKE BREAKFAST WAS GOING ON.
I covered this anti-violence protest in York city and prayed to the night cops gods for a boring night.
I probably jinxed myself.
About 15 minutes after I returned to the office, night metro editor Kate Harmon informed me that there was a house fire involving exotic birds in Newberry Township.
Um … OK.
So I headed to Newberry Township with photographer Chris Dunn. Click here to check out her blog about the fire.
We trekked through the woods via a dark, gravel lane.
We were there about two hours and even caught up with Senft, who introduced us to one of her parrots — a macaw named Delilah.
One of Senft’s dogs — believed to have been killed — emerged from the woods two hours later. It was a pretty awesome moment.
(The dog is a Cockapoo Chihuahua mix. It’s called a Cockapoochi … )
Oh yeah, did I mention I tweeted? A lot.
After I could no longer feel my butt or finger tips, I returned to the office, grabbed some Panera, and sat down to write.
What a wild night.
