thursday may 29

today i was walking down margueretta street at night when i noticed that a sprinkler was running on a lawn up ahead of me. it was hard to make it out in the dark, but it looked like if i kept walking along the sidewalk, i’d end up getting soaked, so i ducked out into the street, making a wide turn while i approached dundas. as i neared the intersection, a group of four jovial people walked toward me, talking and laughing and generally not paying the sort of close attention i was to their surroundings. i briefly considered warning them about the sprinkler, but for all i knew, it wasn’t even reaching the sidewalk, and they were quickly past me anyway. turning onto dundas, the next thing i heard was their laughs turning into screams as they walked directly into the line of fire(/water).
