Well he's my hero



Tonight we went to the movies on a whim. We were in our jammies and decided to clean up and go. The parking lot was packed! On a Tuesday whats up with that? We drove around and around looking for a spot.
While making another turn Romney kinda starting laughing because he saw a boy eat it on his bike. But the boy didn't get up. We saw two men run for him and he still didn't get up. Romney pulled over and got out. I crawled over the seat to continue to find a spot. When I finally found a spot in the way back- by the "not good enough restaurants to be in the actual plaza" I walked kind of fast to see what was going on.


When I approached the scene I saw Romney the medic helping a complete stranger. He was crouched down holding this young boys neck in place. With one hand he was feeling for a pulse and talking in his ear asking questions and keeping him calm. When I made it closer I thought DUDE I'M WITH THAT GUY. By the time I got to the actual location I heard our fire friends coming. Once his buddies got there they had Rom put the neck brace on the boy and he gave them a report of what had happened. Off we went to the movies first stopping by the bathroom to wash his "nasty" hands.


So the boy did eat it on the bike and knocked himself out. I know Romney didn't do CPR and save somebodys life BUT he did step up and take charge on scene, and the fact that he actually knew what to do on a scene, he wasn't nervous to get down and touch his neck and feel the bones down his back. He kept this boy calm and that's totally hot. He's my hero at least.


FYI- We saw Julie and Julia to get us excited about PARIS and all the food. It was DARLING. Lots of funny parts. Very entertaining indeed. That Julia Child is HILARIOUS

Yea Romney! It's funny, because we were just talking about him at lunch today (there were firemen at our restaurant). They seemed to be enjoying a nice leisurely lunch, but we wondered if they could have gotten called out of there at any second . . .

Good for him!

My hubby doesn't save lives but he's a pretty good motivational speaker. When I went up to San Fransisco with him to hear him speak I was proud he was my hubby.
