"RedVines! What the hell can't they do?"

We were driving through town.
He saw her, with her cardigan and
walker and
plastic bags.
Cars whizzed past,
not seeing
or caring.
"Turn around." he said.
"We should help her."
We all protested.
"Keep driving mom!"
"Just ignore him."
But we turned anyway
drove back to her.
The old lady on the street.
Some other guy helped
her across,
but we stopped traffic
and made everyone
We made the world a better place
all because
he was right.

This happened to me with my mom's boyfriend.
I love that about him. He is so funny with his quirks like that. But we did help that little old lady across the street.
