Am I blogging excessively?
Don't answer that.
I just wanted to share this wise counsel from my 12 year old.
There has apparently been a black bear sighting in our neighborhood. Upon hearing this, Braeden turned to Mark with all the seriousness that a bossy older brother can muster and he said, "Mark, this is important to remember..."
(I listened in...what did my boy scout have to say about this? Is a black bear something you try to scare away or something you roll into a ball and cower from? These are the types of things suburbanite women need to know.)
Braeden continued, "If you are out with your friends and you see a bear, you don't have to outrun the bear. You just have to outrun your friends."
Mark nodded solemnly and said, "OK."
