Talking Dictionary 652. Baby Sleeping, Engine Running


652. It was 10:30 p.m. and drizzling. Mom pulled into the empty parking lot at a small market in Queens. Her two‐year‐old daughter was strapped into the baby seat. Without turning off the engine, Mom ran into the store. She bought some milk for her daughter and dashed back outside. Her car was gone. She screamed, "Where's my baby? Where's my baby?" She called the police. About 30 minutes later, they found her car. The keys and her unharmed baby were still in the car. Thanking the good Lord, she drove home. Her husband was sleeping. She put the baby to bed. The next evening, her husband said, "Did you hear the news? Some woman left her baby in her car with the engine running. Someone stole her car, but they found it and her baby." His wife said, "She's a very lucky woman." He said, "Yeah, and twice as stupid." 3.3
