The other night after some Central Oregon brewery suppertime fun, I pulled out of my downtown diagonal parking spot and proceeded to circle the block to head for home.
Chicken Little: That was crazy, Mom! Why did you go all the way around the block instead of just turn around back there?
Me: Because it’s illegal. You can’t back up and turn around in the street like that.
Chicken Little: Well, what would happen if you did?
Me: If I got caught by a policeman, I’d get in trouble. I’d get a ticket.
Chicken Little: (scoffs) Police aren’t everywhere, Mom. They can’t be all places at once. Next time just do it!
