Why do I want to follow this up by singing “Shoop”?
Anybody else see Ellen Degeneres sing this? Now that was pretty freaking awesome. I don’t remember if it was a comedy show or her talk show but regardless, it cracked me up. So yeah, where was I? Oh right:
I keep hearing about this technorati site and feeling all out of the loop (what else is knew?) and I decided that sometimes there are never too many bandwagons, and it being free and all, I signed up, made an account and “claimed” my blog – somebody has to, right?
So if you technorati (or even if you don’t), and you like me blog (or heck, even if you don’t but maybe your a pathalogical liar?) you should totally mark my blog as a favorite so I can feel even remotely special? Please?
Alright, it’s late and I am not going to stay up to get into this right now, but anyone who hasn’t read about this, MomLogic did an article on kids dying from being locked in a hot car during the day – like 10-15 hours at a time – by accident obviously, the parent or caregiver somehow forgetting to drop the kid off at daycare, preschool, etc before going to work themselves, and not finding out until they got out of work, etc.
It’s tragic obviously, the article like practically had my crying, but now having read and processed the whole thing I’m supremely glad to have read it, because I didn’t realize how quickly dangerous something like that can be – I mean it makes sense, but I’d just never thought about it. Now more than ever, I see how important it is to NEVER LEAVE YOUR CHILD UNATTENDED IN THE CAR. And to just always check, you know? You never know… I don’t know. I’m tired. But seriously, if you haven’t heard about this and you’re like “what the heck is she talking about,” grab a tissue, read the article, prepare to be disturbed and angry and maybe wondering why you read it, but I think later, after you’ve calmed down you’ll thank me.
I debated wether to post this or not, but it’s just seriously so freaking tragic, that those 16 lives were lost. If I can save one life by posting this and maybe getting the word out to that one mother who maybe, I don’t know, you get the idea. It’s important.
