Anna and I were on the freeway last night and I had to abruptly stop to avoid rear-ending someone. I glanced in my rearview and could see the person behind me swerve into the left lane to avoid smashing into me.

It was tense. I let loose a couple expletives (the "f" and "s" word, if you must know). I cringed, waiting for Anna to utter her first swear. Instead, she corrected me and said, "Uh-oh spaghettios!"

"Yes," I told her, "that's exactly what I said. Uh. Oh. Spaghettios."

Yeah, I know. Spaghettios aren't vegan. But she sounds damn cute when she says it.

Song currently stuck in my head: John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt (la da da da da da da!).

Cuteness. Reminds me of a time I let loose with some expletives in a traffic incident with my 2 little brothers in the car. :-)

That's so cute, I'm glad ye were ok though!

However, I really wish I hadn't read this post. Do you have any idea how long it takes me to get that John Jacob song out of head? Mr HPP is always singing it!
