Baby Think It Over

I returned from a delivery tonight to find manager Nick in the parking lot, smiling and talking with a police officer who was in his cruiser.

A customer had phoned in to the police that there was an infant locked in a car, alone, so of course the police rushed over to check it out.

The thing was, it wasn't a real baby. It was Baby-Think-It-Over, from cook Adam's school class. Adam has to care for the baby this weekend but didn't want to bring it in to work so he left it in his car and was checking it during breaks.

This story tells more about the computerized Baby and how they are used in school parenting classes.

The only interesting delivery was my last one. The customer told me he was "watching the Sopranos and had to have some pasta."

I drove 4 1/2 hours, took 10 deliveries, drove 39 miles, and made $23 in tips.
