I thought Friday night was going to be a fun evening. My oldest son was home from college to celebrate his birthday, and we'd decided to head to Olive Garden for dinner.
We parked across from Olive Garden near Chase Bank. The five of us were standing waiting at the crosswalk -- myself, my 10-year-old daughter Shaylee, my 12-year-old son Jackson, my college son Mathew and his friend Niveo. We pushed the crosswalk button. The stoplight turned red and our animated "walk" guy lit up.
