The Teddy Bear Dancing On The Freeway
Driving along I-25 northbound when suddenly I spotted a Teddy bear bouncing along the road. My eyes quickly darted up along the highway to scan the speeding cars for the origin of said bear. About 30 feet ahead in the lane just to the right of the one I'm in I see a driver in an SUV turning towards the back seat that is occupied by a child safety seat, with, no doubt, a now crying if not outright wailing child in it.
The right turn indicator starts to flash as the SUV merges into the lane to the far right, and then into a lane that leads to the next exit.
There's no way the Teddy bear can be retrieved, but the driver of the SUV, most likely the parent of the former owner of the Teddy bear, is going to have to spend a lot of time calming that former Teddy bear owner down...and googling where the closest place a replacement Teddy bear can be bought.
