On the way home tonight, had a close shave with a passing car. Well, maybe not THAT close…
On the one hand (perhaps in a rather perverted way?), I was kind of hoping to have the opportunity to recount one of those intriguing near-death experiences. However, and very fortunately, things did not pan out that way.
What happened was that, after work, as I was crossing the road (zebra crossing, green man and all), I noticed that a car was speeding towards the junction and it was definitely coming way too fast. Being my usual highly alert self, I stopped mid-way (since the car is in next lane which is directly in front of me) to size the whole situation. To my surprise, and no doubt to the horror of the people behind me, the car hardly slowed and sped through the crossing. All this happened in front of my eyes!
Glad to be saying that I live to tell the tale, I suppose… 🙂
