On the way to church this morning, there weren’t many people on the road. I wasn’t surprised, given the late night of fireworks many people had enjoyed the night before AND the rainy, groggy morning inviting people to stay in bed. My family, however, was up and at ’em because, despite staying up past 10 PM the night before, a full 2 HOURS past her bedtime, Lexi only slept until 7:06 AM, a mere 6 minutes past the usual time we allow her to get out of bed in the mornings. The cloudy weather helped me “fool” her into going back to sleep, but she was up for good by 7:30.
Anyway, as we were driving to church, I hit 3 green lights in a row. I commented to Elian, “I haven’t been caught by any red lights yet…”
About five minutes passed as we wound around some back roads to get to our church. As I turned right at the 5th stop sign on our route, Elian piped up, “You haven’t been caught by any stop signs yet either.”
