I had somewhere to be this afternoon. Instead of going by motorcycle (the most common means of transport where I am) and being at my destination in 3 minutes, I decided to take the 13-minute walk, get some fresh air and exercise. Looking nice and casual, I walked through my neighbourhood, slowing down every so often to see which shops were newly opened, and to look at the pretty wares on display. I let my brain go on auto-pilot, thinking about nothing in particular.
My reverie was interrupted by a hissing sound. Pssst! Usually, I ignore any hissing or calling sounds, responding only to an Excuse me or a Hello. This pssst as so insistent, the young lady walking in front of me turned to see, and quickly walked on. Pssst! Pssst! I turned. It was a man across the street. I gestured, what? He motioned to me to come over.
I was stunned. I couldn’t believe that a random scruffy dude expected me to abandon wherever I was headed and cross the street, so he could talk to me.
