Almost Death, but Not Quite

posted by Momo Fali on August 22, 2012

Yesterday morning, our dog almost got run over.

My husband and my son were walking her when she suddenly darted away and into the path of a school bus which, in my husband’s words, “…was not going to stop.” My son witnessed the entire incident.

When they returned home, he was one shaken-up kid and insisted upon giving me a play-by-play.

And, I know it was an honest account of what happened, because after he went on and on about Daisy’s near-fatal mistake, he ended the story with, “It was so terrible! I was scared 3/4 to death!”

    Love them kid funnies.

  • Sarah

    Clearly his summer homework included fractions!

  • Zak

    Ha! Glad the dog made it!

  • ColdBlooded

    Using fractions to describe feelings. I 5/6 love that idea. Your kid is a future mathematical genius.

  • Monica

    Love it!

  • Tara R.

    Much more serious than half to death.

    So glad your pup is okay.

  • Alexandra

    This made me laugh and broke my heart at the same time.
    Poor baby.

  • Rhea

    Your son is adorable. And I’m so glad Daisey is okay. That would have been traumatic for everyone!

  • Rumour Miller

    Oh the things our children say. So glad that Daisy was okay, that would have been a terrible thing to have happen.

    I loved sitting in on your session at Pathfinder Day. You and Deb were fabulous and I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to hear you speak!
    Thanks to you for that.

    Thank goodness nothing happened.

    I love his 3/4 comment. Too cute!

    When I was a teenager, I saw the aftermath of a dog getting hit by a hit and run. I had no idea who the dog was but to this day, it shook me up. I can only image how traumatic it would be to see that almost happen to your family dog.

    But the 3/4 thing cracked me up!
