We, three of us, myself, the Help, and a neighbor, were driving back to the house when I noticed something coming down R St. There was a woman, slender, pony tail bouncing away, white earbuds and iSomething in her left hand which extended with her advancing steps. About 4 feet directly behind her on the sidewalk was a kid on a bike going slowly. I pointed it out to my companions and we watched at the intersection as the woman crossed and the kid stayed a good 3-4 feet behind her, without trying to pass, and she seemed completely oblivious to the situation. As they both made it through the intersection, we all looked at the kid and the kid, who was in his late teens, looked back at us looking at him. Not feeling right about it, we swung the car around the block to see the woman make it to the next corner, without the kid on the bike following her so closely. This was about 6:15PM on Saturday. Nothing happened. But something in my gut says we prevented something from happening.
Anyway, be aware of your surroundings. Stop holding your iCrap with one hand extended out from your body.Caryn at the BACA blog. What didn't happen? Subsidized housing for the non-elderly in an area that shares a block with S.O.M.E.
