Christine borrowed my sister's car to go to work today. She came home and told us that when she left she couldn't understand why everyone was going so slow. She passed car after car. Then on the way home from work she noticed the same thing - very slow drivers. She finally realized my sister's car speedometer is in miles - not kilometers. She was actually traveling through city streets at 60 miles an hour!
Christine also told me a story from her childhood that I didn't know about. Her older sister Sandy and a cousin wanted to walk across a field to get to the other side but it was fenced and there was a bull inside. So Sandy and her cousin got a red sweater, put it on Christine and told her to distract the bull while they ran to the other side. Her plan worked.
I think this shows how smart Sandy was even when she was young!
