Red light, green light

Walking around in a nearby city yesterday, Elaine and Ben and I came to a corner where two one-way streets intersected. Already waiting to cross: a mother and daughter, the latter perhaps three years old. There wasn’t a car in sight, and there they stood. Who were we to set a bad example? It took a long time for the light to change. And then we crossed safely and went on our way.

Daughter Number Three said...

I hate to admit it, but had I been there, I would probably have crossed against the light in full view of the three-year-old.

Daughter Number Three-Point-One shakes her head at my egregious jaywalking habits.

I’m laughing — I’m the main offender in our family.
