So much for having been a Girl Scout.
It’s one thing to not act my age (something I’ll never do), but it’s another not to respect my own age and to remember that I am not 18 anymore. It was a foolish move. Going out for a walk without my mobile phone, at dusk. Taking a dog who’s a rambunctious 65 lbs of solid muscle for a walk alone when no one was outside because it was dinnertime wasn’t the best idea I’ve had in a while. Especially when I tripped on the uneven asphalt and catapulted forward onto my knee.
After three or four attempts to stand up, I gave up and just sat there in the street…the leash in one hand, my other on my throbbing knee, and waited. Thankfully, my neighbors had come out for a chat after dinner, and all came running to stay with me as my husband went and got the car to try to get both the dog and me back home. I got lucky. But, what if no one had seen me there? How long would I have been sitting in the street, a dog pulling at the leash and waiting?
