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!”
