Meet Pard

I am a rover and today I am filling in for your firefighter who is off (drew a buck tag up north). I haven't put on my uniform yet so as you approach me in the apparatus bay you scan my surrounding area for anything that might have my name on it. You recognize me and my name is on the tip of your tongue, but you are drawing a blank. It's killing you. I was just here last week and we had a blast! You continue to look for clues as you approach me, but unable to recall it you become increasing frustrated with yourself for not remembering. As you close in on me you decide to play it safe and not try to guess my name. You reach out for a handshake and ask "what's up Pard?". I reach out, completing the handshake, and reply "not a lot brother", because you also have yet to put on your uniform and I can't remember your name either. Now that we got that out of the way, LETS GO!!! Woooooooooooo!!!!
