League of Extraordinary Bloggers: "My Work Number is 911!"

I'm jumping back in the LoEB with this week's assignment:

"Television executives have determined that you lead an amazing life and have pegged you as the next big reality TV star. What’s the name and the premise of your show?"

I considered skipping this topic, but since I was unable to write last week, decided I'll go for it. I don't particularly like to talk about my day job because it usually raises annoying questions and I prefer to leave work at work. However, since there have already been several TV shows about my profession, I figured this would be easy.

My show would be called: My Work Number is 9-1-1!

When not blogging and playing with toys, I'm a 911 operator for a major metropolitan police department in South Florida. For those of you who remember Rescue 911, it's pretty much like that, on the phone, but without William Shatner. I can assure you it's a highly stressful job and very demanding, however it's not all deaths and disturbances. In fact, a large percentage of calls deal with mundane matters, but a few times a day you get calls like these:

Oh, and the one about the lady who was "locked" inside her car... Yeah, that actually does happen. So the show would focus on those zany calls. It would be light-hearted and comical, a stark contrast to the real emergencies we handle.

Other than that, I don't know what kind of show I'd be the star of. I don't go to flea markets or conventions, so no Toy Hunter-esque show for me. Nope. When I'm home I'm either playing daddy to my 4-year-old daughter, the good boyfriend to my live-in girlfriend or shopping for toys and collectibles online and at my local stores.

It would have to air on Court TV because "it's not reality. It's ACTUAL-ity!"... or Comedy Central. And there you have it!

And here I thought Monster Cafe was just a great name for a blog!

I intentionally avoid those penny machines because I would HAVE to collect them all! Not a problem for the master of the Dork Horde!

Talking animals AND toys?! I'd tune into Priordial Badger's Media Hoard's show!

Cool and Collected's show has an infinite amount of possibilities!
