Revelations acquired while walking the three miles between the repair shop and home:
1. These shoes are more comfortable than I gave them credit for.
2. There are multiple instances where someone thought it was a good idea to build an old-folks' home and a funeral parlor next door to each other.
3. There is something automatically mortifying about sitting in a car and waiting for someone outside the office of a psychic. The man was wearing dark glasses and had slouched so far down into his seat that I thought his shoulders were going to swallow his head.
4. I am a suspicious looking character. This poor guy thought I was following him and kept trying to look at me out of the corner of his eye, so he walked into a pole. I thought this was terribly funny, but I don't think he was amused.
