Street Cred

Apparently I've got some "street cred" in our neighborhood.

This afternoon I was returning from a stroller walk/nap. Along our street there were 7 boys playing soccer (AKA: football). I recognized two of the boys from the Snowball Incident of a few weeks ago.

One of the boys called out "Time Out!" and all the kids stopped playing and stood to the side as I walked by. Polite "Gruezi's" were quietly muttered. The game recommenced once I was safely by.

Not sure if it was fearful respect or respectful fear, but it worked.

You always were a bad ass, just ask the kid in KC when his mother came in towing him by the ear.
