When your child decides to ride her scooter (3 wheel at that!) down a retaining wall, do you
a) Have a heart attack because she is 5 feet from falling onto the driveway?
b) scream "NO!" in slowmotion?
c) calming go out and explain why that is not a wise idea?
d) all of the above
Or How about this scenario?
You daughter hits the edge of the bike path and falls down. Her bike is pinning her to the ground. You noticed a large group of race bikers are coming Do you:
a) Throw your bike to the side
b) Heave her bike off her and listen to everyone asking if she is okay while you still can’t tell
c) Be calm and notice the patch of poising ivy on the side of the trail. Then gently place the bikes down away from the ivy.
d) A&B and want to tell the people asking questions "WHAT THE FUCK? HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW?"
(the answers in both cases are d, one child was hurt in the making of this post and she only has a badly cut knee and a crushed ankle. She rode home and was okay after some icing and elevation. G-d, I hope I don’t react to the poison ivy I tossed my bike in)
