Take A Walk On the Wild Side
There is something about it though, that sort of always makes me smile. See, there aren't a lot of people at my work who walk there. It is very much an automobile-centric sort of place, and so it has apparently caused quite a stir that I am hoofing it. People gawk at me. Most of them wave but a lot of them sort of look at me like something is wrong. Lots of them offer me rides, which is really nice and which I actually do take them up on from time to time. Especially when it is super cold or rainy out.
It just makes me laugh that I am such a circus attraction just walking down the street. It is not like when I was new to town and the cops were following me around and people were asking me why I was walking down their street, this is much nicer and more benign. And I sort of like it in a way, it just makes me crack a smile. I am just walking down the street. On the sidewalk. That's what it is made for. And my walk to work probably takes less time than your drive. So settle. I am fine. Thank you though. I just hope you don't all wig out when I start riding my bike.
