The scariest thing about today?

It wasn't that I sent my boys to school with dirty socks.

It wasn't when Luke asked why I had sent him kiwi and apples in his lunch and I explained (while cringing) that I had not put kiwi in his lunch since last THURSDAY!

It wasn't realizing that although now everyone has clean socks and underwear, they don't have any clean pants for tomorrow.

It wasn't the scary-screaming-obscenity-man at Walmart.

It wasn't Tucker repeating a word from a private conversation that Savanna and I were having.

It was the biker Grandma at Walmart, asking me what carseat I thought would work best on the back of her motorcycle. She planned on attaching it to the sissy bar with a bungee cord.
That is all kinds of scary.

Are you kidding me?! A bungee cord! What did you tell her? I don't think I could have said anything at all at that point...

I don't even know what to say! What a day!

She had to be kidding. Like seriously. No one's that stupid.... right?

Also, ditto Veronica's question -- what did you tell her?

What a funny, funny post. Oh my goodness, your one-liners captured it all.

WOW... I would have loved to see your reaction to that question!

For once, my mouth was speechless when it comes to car seats. Usually I can go on and on to others about car seat safety.
Imagine me. Grocery cart. Tucker in the cart. Me staring blankly at the woman.
Maybe I was a little intimidated by "grandma biker's" get up. But I think I was mostly stunned that she thought a car seat would be appropriate on the back of a motor cycle!
