The Best Thing Since Sprinkles

Lessons I've learned this afternoon:

1. Building a Dunkin Donuts across the street from the Boys Town campus is the best thing to happen since...well...sprinkles.

2. The same three-year-old girl who can lock the car doors by herself (while strapped in a five-point harness) cannot unlock the car doors.

3. Kind strangers in a parking lot will give you the gloves off their hands. Especially when you've been trying to keep calm in 20 degree weather for 40 minutes.

4. Calling 911 in Omaha will not necessarily give you help - but chances are good you will have a dispatcher hang up on you and several may lack any sort of compassion.

5. I have never been so happy to see a police officer at a donut shop.

6. Locksmiths will not charge you if a child is locked in the car.

7. It takes hours for tears to unfreeze from your face.

Just in case you were ever wondering.
