I’m not trying to be rude. Really.
When I drive I look straight ahead (with the exception of pulling out into traffic) so I can see where I’m going.
My husband tells me I have tunnel vision. Both he and friends tease me about it all the time. But maybe it’s a good thing to ignore what’s on your right and what’s to your left.
However, when I’m walking for exercise, walking in the mall, or even down a sidewalk, I haven’t always adopted this same ethic. Instead, I’ve had more of a wandering vision and it’s gotten me into a mess more than once.
I remember one instance in particular where hubby and I were strolling down the sidewalk at an outside mall. I was trying to check out the delicious purse dangling from the cute girl’s shoulder to my right when I ran smack into a street sign. Ouch!
Humiliating and painful all at the same time.
More often, I just mow people down while I’m gawking at something or somebody to the right or left.
Okay, you might be thinking that I’m not paying attention….
