On my way to yoga this afternoon, I stopped by the gas station to fill up my car’s fuel tank. As I pumped the petrol, I let my eyes just wander and look around at nothing in particular. Imagine my surprise, then, when I saw this:
Seeing this little boy just hanging out in his car seat along the side of the road reminded me immediately of the scene from Raising Arizona:
I nearly laughed out loud. The child I saw today looked so out of place, it was a ridiculously humorous contrast.
(And, just to be clear, this was not a case of neglect or abandonment; the child’s parents were very close by. They were just doing a little minivan spring cleaning.)
