Actually Michael,
The story dad told was titled, "How Mari stopped traffic on the Oakland Bay Bridge."
Remember? They were on their way to an appointment to adopt Mari and that is why they were frantic to get there in time.
In my child's imagination I always thought that Mari, as a baby, had somehow fallen out of the car and they had to make a u-turn to pick her up from the middle of the bridge, where she lie helpless. It wasn't until reading this blog entry that I finally know the real story. I kinda liked my kid version better. Also, I'll admit to being jealous when I was a kid, that Mari had stopped traffic on a bridge.
