K. What the hell?!?
Maybe I'm just weird. Or maybe I got too used to the niceness of the folks in Southern Utah.
But something is definitely going on here.
We got back Wednesday night.
Yesterday and today I had to go into town to take Elizabeth to school. BOTH times I was almost hit by some rude ass driver who just decided to DRIFT into my lane as if my car wasn't even there!
At first I thought "Finally! my cloaking device is working!" then I remembered that don't HAVE a cloaking device!
But ok, whatever, bad drivers are out there...that's just the chance you take when you drive a car I suppose.
I took the Triad to the post office. Dylan was especially energetic...probably because we keep feeding him...
Anyway, he was running around like a crazy boy, and for the most part he was staying clear of the other post office patrons. He DID run into a Show Low football player's leg (he was wearing his jersey, that's how I know he was a football player) but other than that, he wasn't bothering anyone.
Then some friggin crackhead just stepped right out in poor Dylan's path and he didn't have time to swerve or stop and he slammed right into that lady's leg and slammed backward to the ground. Hard.
I was up at the counter. I saw the whole thing go down. I was like "WHAT THE FUCK!?"
Sorry Utah, language.
Dylan got up and came over to me, hugged up against my leg doing that crying without breathing thing that only kids do. I said, "Are you OK buddy?" and he promptly fell over.
Now I'm freaking out, like, is he concussed? What the hell?
I was holding the baby and pulling Dylan to his feet and he got up just fine and seemed ok, except for the BIG FREAKING BUMP ON HIS HEAD!
We walked out past that skank, and she didn't even seem to notice the crying screaming injured child being dragged out past her. Seriously?
In the car I checked his pupils and they were even and he wasn't like drooling or bleeding from the ears or speaking fluent Japanese or anything, so I drove home.
He fell asleep in the car, which made me nervous, but he's awake now and just as rambunctious as ever. So he's probably alright.
But man oh man, I really wanted to deck that ho.
