Convo at work

Me: So I went on a walk last night after looking up all the sex offenders in my neighborhood and I was scared to death.

Stacie: Why in the world would you look that stuff up?

Me: So I am not the next girl that is almost kidnapped at the Target by a known violent sexual predator.

Stacie: Oh yeah he was the guy they arrested in your church building last year huh?

Me: See you look these things up so you know "who are the people in your neighborhood, in your neighborhood, in your neighborhood. Oh who are the people in your neighborhood, they're the people that you meet when you're walking down the street, they're the people that you meet each day..." And hope you recognize before they force themselves into your car!

Thank You Sesame Street!


  1. Bark Odds may be in your neighborhood. This is why you look these things up!

  2. Okay. I should NOT be laughing over this post. You were obviously distraught over the sex offender thing (rightfully so), but the whole "People in your Neighborhood" song got me. Actually, you quoting it to your friend got me initially; watching the man with the dark almost-mullet sing with the puppets pushed me over the edge. I grew up watching Sesame Street, and as I was reading your quoted text, I was singing the tune in my head. Just wondering how I could have possibly forgotten the guy who sings the song. :)

    You make me smile, and I miss you.

    You may or may not have inspired me to check out the nasty creepos in my own neighborhood...
