It’s Not All Mary Poppins


We’ve clearly been exposed to too much heavy machinery this month: whenever I back the stroller up (my super-deluxe four-seater stroller), we all spontaneously burst out with:

  1. Four seater, wow, you must have arms like Popeye!

  2. Thanks, Kev.

    Actually, the thing steers like a dream, turns on a dime, and weighs maybe 6 pounds, empty. I’ll have to post a picture.

  4. It sure does draw attention to itself though. In the words of one of my friends, “That is one serious stroller!!”

  6. August: Yup. The company that makes it (Runabout, in Oregon)calls it their “mini-van”. I prefer Monster Stroller!

    Daughter: Yes, it sure does. I have a post on that very thing, called Reactions.

    You might enjoy it!

    Rita: Thanks! Appreciate the positive feedback!

  8. Oh, my! I would have responded to you privately, Southerngirl, but I couldn’t find an email address on your blog, so I’ll have to do it here. I wish I could do it privately, because we’re going a bit beyond public chit-chat here.

    There is no apology necessary at all, at all, and I have absolutely nothing to forgive you for. You are wholly entitled to keep your private life private. You would have been well within your rights to ignore the question altogether, or to tell me to mind my own business. In fact, I probably owe you an apology for prying. I generally do a better job of keeping my inappropriate curiosity in check!

    (If you want to say more in private, my email address is in my profile, but if you don’t want to, I am perfectly at ease with that, too.) Please don’t apologize for protecting yourself or someone else.

    I do sincerely apologize for probing, and putting you in a difficult position – in front of an audience, no less.
