Walking to the shops on Tuesday to buy some bread and an avocado I came to the attention of the local Police Force. Walking up a quiet unpaved street I noticed a group of about eight cars parked on the lawn outside the old person’s home. Wondering why there were so many cars there and if I needed to cross to continue walking. I was not impressed with the idea of having to cross the road, it would mean having to walk on the left of the road and more importantly the walking on the wrong side of the road. That my chances of being killed in a car accident was raised by an inperceivable percentage was unimportant, what was important was they were and I was for unhappy with this. So I decided to continue walking on the right side of the road.
I thought nothing of this as I approached the cars. The old person’s home is cornered by T Juction that connects the suburb to a major feeder road in the small town, a police car was approaching the cars and I. We saw each other at about the same time I think, because just as my brain reconciled the image with the idea, the Police car’s indicator light went on and the car made a U Turn and idled on the lawn. I walked onwards to the shops slightly concerned that I hadn’t heard a door open and close or the sound of a car driving off.
The bread I wanted was on special which was nice. Selecting an avocado was difficult but it reminded me of Goldlilocks. The first avocado was far too firm, the second avocado was far too soft but the third avocado I selected was acceptable. Bored and remembering the cream in the fridge I bought some snack sized apple pies.
I walked back home and saw the Police car parked across the road from a drive way with the indicator still on. The indicator signalled that were thinking about entering the road. As I got closer the Police car pulled into the drive way and sat there. Parked there, I realise this now, the Police would have been able to see down the entire length of the street from their side mirrors. The Police car sat there until I had walked past the group of cars.
Silly Police men.
