Wow, sabrtooth - pretty scary and amazing story! I'm always amazed at how different people can act. The other day I was in Target near check out and I realized I forgot something. I left ds10 and ds8 holding the cart (literally - hold this and don't let go) and ran to grab it. On the way, I saw a friend, but said, "hey, can't talk, the boys are waiting." I think I was gone about 90 seconds. When I returned, the boys were still hanging on to the cart, but talking to the friend's son. When I said, "oh, hi, does your mom know where you are?" he replied the he just wandered around while she did all her grocery shopping. This woman had an overflowing cart and her son was just meandering about for an hour. Honestly, I don't get it.

Even when people say "I just ran to the corner store" I don't understand... what if you get into an accident? People are WAY too lax!
