Pedestrian Crossing

As the man stepped off the curb to cross the street, a car careened around the corner about a block away.

With the car speeding towards him, the man picked up the pace to cross the road faster, but then the driver suddenly swerved to change lanes.

Panicked, the man darted back towards the side of the street he came from, but again the car swerved back into its original lane and was headed straight towards the man.

Now terrified, the man froze in place. The car screeched sideways, coming to a halt, mere inches from the pedestrian.

The motor still purred as the power window rolled down. To the man’s surprise there was a squirrel behind the wheel of the car.

Before the man could respond to what just happened, the squirrel said, “Not as easy as it looks, now is it?”
