Honestly, i attract all sorts of random stuff.
I woke up on Saturday morning aching all over. I knew i didnt have the energy to deal with my weekly kickboxing class with Seargent Joe. So i decided to don my earphones and take a long walk in my estate instead. I was humming under my breath and walking away when i turned the corner onto a street i hardly frequent. Halfway down the street, i saw 2 dogs. Obviously belonging to noone. Just mongels. One of them was black and white and the other was brown. These dogs would be called bingo of just hissed at. You know the type.
Of course i got scared. I like dogs but clean, well mannered ones, belonging to people i know and prefarably on a leash. And the closer they come to me, the faster i back away. But i remembered that people say to never run from dogs and to not show fear as they can smell fear.
So i kept my shiver to myself and tried to walk by them. The 2 dogs began to walk toward me. I cannot describe how fast my heart began to beat. I figured if i opened my eyes, they would just go away. Nope. They got really close to me and i just lost all bravado. I started to run. As expected, they began to wag their tails and run after me. Thats when i began to scream as i ran. I know i must have looked like a mad woman. Thankfully, some man talking a walk as well, turned onto the street and came to my rescue. He did a whistle, clicking thing with his tongue and the dogs began to run towards him. I just continued running and didnt stop till i got back home. Now i dont run. I jog sure but running is not my thing so i could barely breathe as i staggered through my door.
Exercise be damned.
