May This Thought Never, Ever Enter Your Head.

Yesterday Christopher's bike got stolen at school. He had forgotten his bike lock, and when he came out of the building, it was gone. It's a hard lesson to learn at any time, but especially when you're only in first grade. He cried a little bit, and he's sad, but I must say he's taking it remarkably well.

I called the school and let the vice principal know a bike was stolen on school property so he can remind the kids how important it is to lock up their bikes and to prevent another child from such a bummer of a loss.

The vice principal suggested I file a police report, so this morning I called the non-emergency number of the county Sheriff's department, and the officer taking the calls said they would send someone out.

When I hung up the phone, the first thought that went through my head was, "Better put on a bra. The police are coming over again."

Oh god. I've turned into a female Ronnie Dobbs.
