OK~ Garrett and I are on the way home from youth group last night. This fine conversation goes like this........
Garrett: Can you still do a Chinese Fire Drill?
Me: I played dumb...What are you talking about?
Garrett: Would you get arrested if you did that?
Me: What exactly are you referring to?
Garrett: It's when you stop the car ANYWHERE ( as in the middle of the road) and everybody gets out, runs around and finds a new seat in the car!
Me: Ummm (Pondering how to respond) You can't stop the car just anywhere. You would have to stop at a stop sign or stop light.
Garrett: So, you are saying I wouldn't get arrested for doing that?
Me: No comment........Crank the radio up and no comment the rest of the way home.
We pull into the garage and Garrett says, "Mom, so you think it would be OK to do a Chinese Fire Drill?" I responded, "Nope! Never OK...I am done discussing this"
He's got a little bit of time before he's driving~ He is 15 and as of right now has no desire to get his driver's license...Maybe a good thing, don't you think? After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
