Scenes from the CTA

On the bus ride home with K and C from the Museum of Science and Industry for the Harry Potter Exhibition, there was a family with kids who were clearly having a good day, kicking their legs, talking, laughing, joking; being kids on vacation. At one point in their frivolity, apparently one kid expressed their excitement a bit too much, as the entire bus hears, from the mother, "So help me, God, if you kick me one more time I'm going to ground you with hot sauce in your mouth!"

Ah, the joys of parenting!!
