Safety First

Sharing is sexy.

The other day I was walking down the street when I passed by a family on a sunny afternoon stroll. The two parents looked normal enough, but then I saw their 5 year old son (estimate) pulling up on a tricycle with a special seat, seat belt and helmet on… I’m not sure if the helmet EVER comes off of that kid… I mean, how in the hell are you supposed to get hurt on a TRIcycle? They’re idiot proof, right? I mean, to tip over or fall off of one would defy the laws of physics. To tip over, that low to the ground, and obtain a head injury is even more of a scientific impracticality…

I so badly wanted to go kick him over and look at the parents like, “What? That’s what you expected, right?”. Then walk away smiling as if I had just done the universe a big favor…
