We're learning about the body systems and a group were presenting on the Nervous System. They explained that the brain sends and receives messages by way of the nerves and spinal cord. A girl raised her hand and made this timely connection: It's like texting---only faster!
The young girl thought for a minute then said, "Nope, except for MM." I told her that I knew MM, but that she was not in my class. The girl looked at me again with a puzzled look on her face. "What's your name?" she asked. Again, I replied and told her my name.
Immediately, the little girl blurt out " I've never heard of you in my life!" then spun around and walked off.
I guess that is that!

The evening news filled in most of the gaps and made the whole situation even more scarier than what i had imagined. At a nearby shopping area, two pitbulls were loose in the parking lot chasing customers. People were running up on their hoods and roofs of their vehicles to escape the dogs. One store manager tried to distract a dog from chasing a woman and succeeded in getting bitten. One woman reported that she went driving around the parking lot to warn people just pulling in to stay in their cars. Imagine if you had your young children with you --how would you escape the raging dogs?
Eventually the police arrived and they attempted to distract the dogs. One dog lunged at the policeman and the dog was shot. The other ran off later to be found back at his nearby home.
