Not a Humblebrag, but interesting thing just happened...
So I'm leaving my house to meet the family for a late lunch. I get to the end of the street, and running along the parallel street is a girl, 8-9 years old, wearing only a diaper. I roll down the window to try and ask where she's supposed to be, and she keeps running. I get out and follow her for a while, and she runs onto 78 highway and starts running down through traffic.
My daughter was in my car, so I didn't want to follow this girl too far, but some other people had stopped, I made sure they had called 911, and went back to my car.
I get in my car and turn the direction she was running, and she had made it quite a way, and traffic was stopped in all directions. Several older people were trying to grab her and hold her with little success. I'm a SPED teacher, and CPI certified (basically how to hold children who are a danger to themselves or others), so I pull off the road, and go step in to put her in a "child protective hold." She was, understandably, scared out of her mind, unable to communicate, and spent the whole time (till police arrived) trying to hit, kick, and bite me and others (the hold was difficult, as she had no clothes on, and was sweaty from running.
So anyway, cops showed up, got my info, and I left. But now I'm always gonna be wondering what that was all about, if she's safe, etc.
