Getting Hit and Crossing Streets

I'm not accident-prone, but I've had a few experiences. I remember when I was younger and loved watermelons. I was waiting for my mom in a curb somewhere with the watermelons she brought in the market when one of them rolled towards the road. Me being stupid, I went after it and the moral lesson of this story is: don't go after a watermelon which rolled towards the road.

I get nervous when crossing the street alone. I get more nervous when crossing the street with people walking beside me. I have this belief that while I am not very capable when crossing even on a Ped Xing, the people with me are definitetly dumber and will get me killed along them. Considering how Filipinos are a happy-go-lucky species, they tend to overestimate their lifespan. I get anxious when they overestimate it along mine.

See I'm quite careless. I might have this subconscious belief that I am invincible and lucky (although I tell myself I don't believe in, bah, luck), thus resulting in uncalled-for recklessness. Please do not, I repeat, do not be surprised when you find out poor Liz died in a hit-and-run. I am fairly stupid like that.

Don't worry, Liz. If I hit you, I won't run. I might scream "what a stupet!" at you, but I won't run. Because you're my friend.
