Well, today we went to this art center thing. But there were lots of people in the parking lot, so we drove on over across the street. My grandmother stayed in the car while I got out to go to the art center. There was a large green truck to my left, blocking my view. So, following what I had learned ever since I was 3, I looked to the right, and started to cross the street. As soon as I took a step, some voice in my head yelled "stop and look to the left", so I froze and looked to the left, just as a car passed me. If I had taken two more steps that thing would have mowed me down like nothing. I guess I am lucky. Has anything like this happened to you?
