It's Possible to be Too Cute

On our way to the coffee shop this morning, we come to an intersection. Although the light is green for us, there is a car approaching. What with the three toddlers, the baby and the stroller, I opt to let him finish his right turn before proceeding. Except that he stops in front of us. Right over the crosswalk. Hellllooo? Oh, no, I'm wrong. He's not stopping, exactly, he's just moving really, really, reaaalllly slowly. By the time he clears the sidewalk, the light has changed, and there I am, stuck. Now I have to wait for the next light. Why? Well, because he and the wife were too busy waving at all the cute little kiddies to LET US CROSS THE DAMNED STREET, don't you know!

Si: Tempting, but I really couldn't. They were a nice old couple, just a bit oblivious...

Kristen: LOL That's what the people in the car behind them were saying.

You mean you weren't standing on the street corner just to provide drive-by pleasure for couples in cars?

What did they think you were doing in the crosswalk if not trying to cross the street?

Too funny!

Haley: I didn't think so, no, but apparently I was wrong! LOL

Jen: :-)

Misfit: That's the attitide! I'd have gotten across the street much faster if you'd been driving that car...

Andie: One wonders. One suspects that they weren't thinking at all. This one does, anyway.

Queen Bee: Or they stop and do nothing much at all! That's an interesting picture you have there: what is it/does it signify?

Hi Mary, it represents the variations of things and hence the great possibilities that come :) Cheers!

I thought you'd have a reason for choosing it. Very nice!
