I say to the lady, "I think my son just set off your fire alarm, I'm so sorry!" They all thought it was quite funny. Even the guy that made the "false alarm" announcement over the loud speaker was trying not to laugh. But I didn't think it was very funny as Sean explains to everyone that he thought it was a "candy machine." I really wasn't in the mood to let the little stinker pick out a new toy... but a promise is a promise and for the next 20 minutes Sean kept saying, "I'm so so so really very very sorry that I did that mom! I wont ever never ever do that again! I just thought it was a candy machine, but now I know it's not, so I know never ever to do that again!"
Moral of the story.... I don't think leashes for children is such a bad idea.
