The Things Children Say

On the way to dropping our 7 year-old daughter off at a friend's birthday party, held at a dance studio, I went through some safety precautions. "Stay in the studio after the party until we get there. Don't go outside. Be safe. Etc. Etc." Somehow we got on the subject of noticing your surroundings if you are ever lost or someone takes you. "Make sure you look around. If there is a McDonald's on the corner or a library down the street. See what's around you."
"So noticing a trash can probably won't work?" she asked.
"Um, probably not," I said.
