Dodging Cars

Zipping down the road on the way to five-year-old Therese's "Junior Saints" class yesterday, this is our discussion.

     Therese:    "Are we going to be late, Mommy?"

     Mom:        "I hope not, but we're not going to be early today."

     Therese:    "I don't want to be late, Mommy."

     Mom:        "I"m doing my best, Therese."

     Therese, shouting now: "Go speeding, Mommy! Go, speeding!"

     Mom:        "Honey, I don't want to get a speeding ticket. Besides it's not very safe to 'go speeding.'"

     Therese:    "We'll be fine, Mommy. Just dodge all the cars!"

     Mom:        "Did you just say 'dodge all the cars'?"

     Therese:    "Yep!"

Well, okay then.


Next time I If I ever get pulled over for speeding, I'll try to mitigate the penalty with the ol' "dodging cars" plea.
