Either I watch too much TV, or (S) is just too darn observant


OK, so we are in OKC and we are on our way to Bricktown. That is an area of the city that at one time was a commercial/industrial area where all the buildings are faced in brink. (I could make a joke about the lack of imagination that the people of Oklahoma have but I think everyone knows that any state that is able to come up with "Oklahoma is OK" has probably heard enough of that.) Besides, the epople of Oklahoma City are great people and among the friendliest you will find anywhere.

Anyway, we are on our way to Bricktown and travelling down Reno which is a major east west street. When we get to Harvey St. which is a north/south street at the Ford Center, we are forced to turn right on to Harvey Street. After turning down Harvey we are at a light to turn left onto 3rd street. Now that may all sound complicated and I really don't know why I bother to write it as it isn't acttually improtant to the story, but if you want to check it out you will need the directions.

Now, I have not travelled everywhere in the country, but this is the first intersection where I have ever seen a skign that said "Left Turn on Red After Stop". That is correct. At this intersection they allow a left turn after stop. So, I do what anyone else would have done. After looking to see where the traffic was, and there was none, I went ahead and made the left turn onto 3rd street to continue on my way to Bricktown. Lo and Behold, from the car seat in the back comes "you went through a red light" then i was serenaded wth the words "Bad Boys Bad Boys, Whatcha Gonna do"

Thats right. (S) who is only three years old first recognized that I went through the red light, and then demonstrates she knows the words to the song from the tv show "Cops"

DW and I have to watch fewer of those shows!
