The Pedestrian Shuffle

I was strolling down the street and saw a little old lady shuffling towards me in the opposite direction. She was about fifty feet away and we were on a collision course. I solved the problem by moving closer to the street, creating a clear path for myself and leaving her enough space to keep moving forward without obstruction. She finally glanced up and saw me, then she proceeded to awkwardly shuffle into my path. All she had to do was continue walking in a straight line. But her natural response was to stumble into the line of fire. Come on, lady. You’re old, you should have learned how to walk by now. I’ll get out of your way again, but this is the last time. Pick a path and stick to it, avoid the pedestrian shuffle.

Hiking

If you like walking and nature then you might be interested in hiking. Hiking is glorified walking. It’s off-road, it’s extreme, it’s still just walking. But instead of walking on concrete you’re walking on a path or trail and every now and then you stop to look at trees. You might even take a picture of those trees to post on Facebook to prove to everyone else that you went hiking and that they are lazy and you aren’t. Not only is it great exercise, it’s also the only way to eat trail mix without being a hypocrite.
