Of course, I know better than to wake a sleeping toddler.
I lay the seat back, curl up, and lay down my head. Isn’t that what they always say? Sleep when they sleep?
There’s a knock at the window.
A security guard. Who has woken us both up. Because someone reported to him that there were people sleeping in a car in the parking lot.
She fell asleep, I say, and I didn’t want to wake her. I was waiting for her to wake up to go in. So I napped, too.
Oh, okay, he says with a smile. I’m sorry….I just had to check.
Later, inside the bank, he apologizes profusely for waking her up. I know how it is, he says.
Oh, if only the person who reported us did.
