Aslan and I decide to go on a date today because very sadly, Haddon is sick, and the docs think he shouldn't be near Shep till we know it's not the flu. Soooooo, while Haddon is dating Mimi- Aslan is dating me, and we went to have tea and read "The Boxcar Children" together.
On the way there, I see a fairly large turtle on the side/middle of the road. Normally, I would yell, "Look!" then just keep driving, but since I was remarkably unencumbered, I flipped a u, pulled over, got my 4 year old out of the car and made our way swiftly down the sidewalk to see the turtle up close and personal.
On our way up the sidewalk, though, cars continued to have the nerve to DRIVE on the ROAD, only narrowly missing CRUSHING the turtle right in front of our eyes. One car literally drove over the turtle but somehow just missed crushing it with it's tires.
Our little nature observation came this close to being a roadkill observation.
THAT would have been very traumatizing to me and my three year old, not to mention bad date material, so I am glad to say we were spared.
What we did see was a good samaritan- not us, we just wanted to gawk and point- stop his car in the middle of the road, get out and carry the turtle across the road. And heres the best part.
The whole way across the road, the turtle was peeing.. all... over.. our good samaritan.
It was a good date. Oh, and how else should a mother of boys take her son to tea? We had to fit in some boy stuff, too.
Anyhow, this is a picture of Aslan talking to me on the way there.
