Master of the Moment

On my evening walk, two boys approached me from behind on their bikes. One of the chains slipped and the pedal hit the boy in the leg.

I said, “Are you ok?”

He said, “Yeah.”

After a while, two young women were coming towards me pushing a cat in a stroller. When they saw me they crossed to the other side of the road.

I stopped and gave my friend Cooper the Dog a treat.

Another woman a bit further on said, “Hello.”

I said, “Hello, how are you.”

Then I said, “It’s too hot for June.”

A girl came towards me on her bike and went on past me.

After about 3 kilometers a woman approached me and said, “Hi, how are you?”

I said, “How are you this evening?”

Then I got to the end and turned around to come back. The last woman was coming towards me again.

She said, “Hello again.”

I said, “It’s a bit warm for June innit?”

She said, “It’s only going to get worse.”

I said, “Great.”

After a while, two young women approached and I said, “Good evening ladies.”

Then a man came towards me and I said, “How you doin?”

He grunted.

Then I was home.
