today i was crossing the street
from the coop where i bought some meat
then i heard a shout,
"SUZY, LOOK OUT!"
it's a good thing i'm fast on my feet.
....and, long story short and rhymes aside, this huge white van screeched to a stop just inches (literally, inches) short of making me very dead.
second time i've almost been hit by a vehicle in the past month. but this time it wasn't my fault.
i promise, mom, i was being careful this time.
