Real Life

In the gutter

I was about to cross the road with my four-year-old son who was reminding me that I needed to be careful of the traffic. I asked him what he would do if I was hurt. Very matter-of-factly he said he would just put me in the gutter and wait till Daddy came home to shovel me up!
