No Officer, we don't have an emergency here!

Savannah loves the phone... at first it was just our cell phones, but I think she's been watching me interview people for my freelance work on the home phone and has now taken a liking to it as well.
I went into the kitchen this afternoon to put the leftovers of Pat's dinner in the fridge and came back into the living room to see Savannah playing with our home phone.
I took the phone from her and hung it up... and as she was crying on the floor the phone rang.
It was the Greene County E-911 calling to make sure we didn't have an emergency at our home. How embarrassing is that?
I explained to the 911 operator that my daughter grabbed the home phone and some how called 911 and that everything was OK here... but she sent a deputy out any way (as is standard policy apparently).
So I had to step outside 10 minutes later and explain the same thing to the young deputy that showed up.
How in the world did Savannah dial 911... I'm still trying to figure that one out.

I'm getting a good laugh out of that. :) I know that was totally embarrassing. But still, amusing for me :)
