I came into work this morning expecting another routine Thursday. At about 9am, one of my coworkers was joking with a patient who arrived. She is a Boston Police Officer. My coworker was teasing her that she needed a police escort for her routine appointment. Outside our window, there were several BPD cruiser with lights a flashing and police tape cordoning off a park bench with a lone cooler style lunch bag on top. Next thing we knew, the Bombsquad rig showed up and a very brave man dressed all in black approached said cooler bag most carefully. He had a toolbox with him that no doubt housed all sorts of high tech bomb detection thingies. 1, 2, 3.........He opened the bag while we all held our breath. Out came a tuna fish sandwich and a Heineken. Just another day in the life of a Boston Bomb Squad Guy.
