Happy Pioneer Day!
*By interesting coincidence, Arie Van de Graaff references this same Primary song in his cartoon today!

Ever since we were in Germany (home of the Volkswagen), a couple of kids had been playing Slug Bug. Well, the boy saw a Beetle, and slugged the girl.
Out of nowhere, this big (and drunk) guy got right up in the boy's face: "They may do it in Spain! They may do it in Italy! They may do it in Germany! But in France, we DO NOT HIT GIRLS!"
We were able to shoo him away before anything bad happened, but it was a surprise to everyone! I think they moved on from that game and on to something else from there.
The next adventure was on the subway. We told our kids several times to hurry onto the car; the doors close very quickly at this stop. We lined up; the subway train came. The doors opened...and one girl hesitated. The door closed on her arm, and she had to pull it out and get back onto the platform.
She had the presence of mind to get on the next train, and our group was reunited again.
