To Serve and Protect

By Beth Beutler
1     We were sitting in a restaurant Sunday afternoon when--all of a sudden--two police officers walked through the door.
 
2     I immediately became nervous. I'm not sure why-I hadn't done anything wrong. But I was afraid someone was robbing the restaurant or causing a dangerous problem. Before I could stop myself, I voiced my concern aloud.
 
3     "Don't start, Brian," Dad scolded.
 
4     "Sorry," I replied as I looked back down at my plate of macaroni and cheese. (I always got the kid's meal when we came to this restaurant. They have the best macaroni and cheese!)
 
5     The police officers walked by our table. They nodded at my father, who muttered, "How're ya doin'," as a quick greeting. The officers kept walking.
 
6     (By the way, why do people ask questions like that if they don't expect an answer?)
 
7     The officers sat three booths away from us on the opposite side of the aisle. I kept sneaking glances.
 
8     "What are you so interested in, Brian?" Dad asked.
 
9     "Do police officers always carry guns and handcuffs?" I asked.
