Did he think before he acted?

I was driving to work this morning going about 45 in a 35. Okay, maybe it was closer to 50. Traffic was moving along quite nicely. I was not the lead car zipping ahead of everyone else. I'm not saying this to excuse the fact I was disdainfully ignoring the speed limit. I'm simply painting the picture.

The street is a busy, well-trafficked one. Not a neighborhood road by any means.

A man walking his dog steps out into the street maybe 25 feet in front of my car. He is waving his hands wildly and yelling "Slow down!"

Was I going too fast?


Did I need to slow down for others' safety and to obey the law?


Did he think before he stepped in front of a fast moving vehicle?

I think not.

  1. Don't ever move to Egypt. Crossing the street involves just that- stepping out in front of fast moving cars. It's similar to frogger. One lane, stop (cars going around in front & back of you), next lane, stop, next lane, etc till you get across. It's hazardous to your health. Emily says you have to go when the Spirit leads. The Spirit may not lead you when it leads me. But after the Spirit leads both of us we meet on the other side. It's insanity.
