Starting My Own Urban Legend

Do you remember the email chains about a knife-wielding killer who would hang out in the back seats of unsuspecting women’s cars? It freaked me out so much that I always glanced in my windows before getting into my car.

Those days were over once I had kids and a minivan.

I figured that I had a better chance of getting out alive than the poor sap/murderer with fruit snacks stuck on his ass — dizzy from the stench of moldy sports bottles and random socks.

However, due to recent sighting at Wal-Mart, I am paranoid all over again…


This haunts me. I can’t peel my eyes away from Dora’s Incredible-Hulk-GI-Joe-Kung-Fu-Grip-for-sippy-cup hands.

And I had another scare in my own rear-view mirror:

Junior allegedly playing his DS under a sheet. “Mom, it’s my portable man cave.”

    I’m w/Iceel — my kinda kid. Brainy and entreprenurial — portable man cave indeed! (Besides, you really can’t see the game that well in the daylight, mom, duh!). And yeah, that Dora seat is giving me Poltergeist creepy clown in the chair is gonna strangle me thoughts.

    Dude, that Dora chair is terrifying!

    Did your husband design the car seat? I noticed that Dora is double fisted

    My thoughts exactly — I literally jumped when I spotted that freaky Dora! Any kid would be terrified to sit in that seat. (And yes, that was Junior’s argument exactly: he needed to see the Pokemon better on his game. Yeesh.)

    Yet, I can’t stop staring at it!

    Dora, Boots and Kinger love Cerveza Corona.

    Whoever designed that Dora chair has some serious issue to work out in intensive therapy.

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m calling mine because that is some seriously scary sh*t!
