The two youngest stepkids recently decided to try their new sidewalk chalk in the middle of the road. They couldn’t understand why I thought it was so dangerous. One figured the cars would stop to look at the cute pictures. The other said he would just re-spawn. Ack!

So when I saw this headline, I did a quick mental edit and read dramatically. This is how convos at our house go:

“Hey kids, listen to this sad story: ‘Oregon man doing push-ups in road struck by car; killed.'”

“Oh… that’s awful… but what’s an organ man?”

“A guy who really wanted to be a donor.”
