Walk, Don’t Run

Why do we do it? And, admit it, you do do it. We all do.

Recap with me. You need to cross the street. If you don’t have the chance to jay-walk, you make your way to the cross walk. Stay within the lines. The lines are your friend.

Not too mention it’s the law. We’re supposed to walk there. And, more importantly, the cars are supposed to stop and let us.

So, why do we run.

You know you do it. I’ve seen you.

The cars eventually stop and you start across the street, often picking up into an outright jog. Why? Those white lines are our haven. Our safe zone. Yet, it’s almost as if we feel like we’re holding up the drivers so we decide to quicken our pace.

I’ve done it. You’ve done it. We’ve all done it.

The question is….why?

What else?

I got nothin’.

    Okay I understand what you are saying…. why are we running? today crossing the street i felt bad i felt as though i was holding someone up. But honestly what is everyone’s hurry? you get there when you get there. Where’s the fire? perhaps living in the museum and everyone moves at the 1876 pace you expect the world around you to move that way.

    Do you remember Libby last year and the car accident?
