Friendly Feud

By now most people who read my blog know there has been a long-standing feud between Lisa Derderian and me over who has the best PIO hat.

A couple of weeks ago Lisa, who is the emergency management coordinator and PIO for the Pasadena Fire Department, and Fire Chief Dennis Downs stopped by my office with a special gift: my very own Pasadena Fire Department PIO hat!

It includes a miniature firefighter, hydrant, fire truck, a PERT sign, a photo of Lisa, a whistle, a firefighter badge and perhaps the most important tool of my trade: lipstick!

Apparently Lisa thought I would fall for this faux peace offering.

Think again, sister.

In a moment of obvious weakness, she allowed me to place my new Pasadena PIO hat on her head.

Who has the best hat now, Lisa?

You're wearing it!
