monday march 30

today i was crossing the intersection at bloor and lansdowne when i was nearly hit by a car. a driver in the right-hand lane on bloor came zooming up to the corner on the red light and while i expected her to stop short of me, she didn’t brake until the very last second, getting so close that i instinctively put up my right hand to brace myself as if that would help at all if she had slammed into me. right after she stopped, i turned to look at her, and she raised a hand in my direction, looking very apologetic. someone with a hotter temper than me probably would’ve yelled at her -- maybe given her a middle finger. but i’m such a chill guy that i just laughed and shook my head as i walked away.
