Sir, Are You Okay?
16 days ago, I was on my weekly Monday night backwards walking session.
Normally, I do these during the early morning hours but sometimes on Mondays I go in the later afternoon, early evening, before I teach the weekly Panda lesson.
On this particular day, I was strolling along and maybe it was the energy I was emitting, but some of the dogs on the street were getting all worked up about me, which was unusual.
I continued on and on my return trip, a lady, coming the other way, walking forwards, said, ‘Do you live around here? Why are you walking backwards?’
I answered and then chuckled and continued on.
A bit odd, but okay.
The next thing I notice was this guy drives by me 4 different times in an old Ford Bronco, I assumed he was looking for a missing dog or something, but nevertheless.
Well, finally, I get back to my truck, which I always park at what we call Bigfoot’s House (an old abandoned house we park at for our weekly bike rides). And wouldn’t you know it….
The police pull up.
‘Sir, we received a call that you are walking up and down the street backwards. We just wanted to check on you to make sure everything is okay.’
Haha. I replied that I do this all the time and admittedly, I was high naturally from my breathing and backwards walking but he laughed and carried on.
If you concern yourself too much with what others may think about you, even if they are going to call 911 because of your weirdness, then you aren’t be to yourself.
Think about it.
