Actually, when I first heard about ORN on the radio in 2005, I wasn't paying full attention. I thought it was Operation Pantyhose. I thought it was all about delivering stockings to young women in Halifax who had developed a run at an inopportune time; and we, springing to attention, would rush pantyhose to these women as quickly as we dared, risking life and limb in the process.
But I was wrong.
Please don't tell anybody. Very embarrassing. You can imagine what I showed up with that night, when I appeared for my first shift. At least I wasn't cold, driving home afterward.
