Doing the Right Thing

When I mentioned it to Mrs. Chatterbox she looked alarmed, like I’d lost my mind. When I stopped speaking she said, “You did the right thing.”
When I mentioned it to our son CJ, he cocked his head like I was stupid for even considering such a thing. Finally, relief flooded his face and he said. “You did the right thing.”
But I still feel badly about it. Read about it (here.)


  1. ugh, scary thought to see a kid all alone out there at that age...the wrong person would have been trouble to them...and i am glad they had a cell phone to call someone but...sheesh...not sure i would have let my 8 year old out there alone...

  2. It is a thing society has belittled down to. Nobody can be good because a tiny number of people are bad.

  3. You did the right thing. :-)
