bonus anecdote # 9 (double-length) - tourist, 1997

In Joshua Tree boy and dog were on-coming; I scrabbled out of their way, lost footing; tore knee out of my jeans.

What, I position myself lower than children and dogs now?

... winter, three tweens in deep path; I gave right of way, snow over boot-tops
... bus, sprawl-man taking 2 seats, triple-cramped let him
... work, obedient to dismissal from lunchroom so coworkers could gossip
... In Grade 10, Grade 3s excused me so they could share jokes too crude.
