I almost killed someone today
----------OR-----------------
I saved a little boy's life


(The facts are these:)

Coming out of Bobby and Jen's neighborhood, a little boy ran out directly in front of my car. He couldn't have been more than two years old. I slammed on brakes and swerved, and very luckily didn't hit him.

The mom was standing on the side of the road checking her mail. Apparently not paying attention to her son.

That was the scariest moment of MY day. I bet that was the scariest moment of HER life.

Watch your kids, y'all.

I actually hit a 13 or so year old kid on a bike once. Living here, near the school, the street behind my house is on an old sinkhole, and the street goes downhill steeply, there's a stop sign at the bottom, and then you go uphill. I had stopped, and was proceeding uphill, when a kid riding a bike way too small for him and wearing JNCO shorts that almost touched his feet, one of his legs got caught in the chain and he skidded directly into me. I actually stopped before he hit me.

He was fine, but he was unable to free himself so I actually had to cut off part of his pants leg to get him out of his chain. His front wheel was kind of messed up, but he, and his bike were ok. Although his shorts looked funny the rest of the day!
