The Budapest Backpedal


After visiting the milk truck this morning, I turned to cross the street and waited for the signal next to two gentlemen on my left, in front of the puddle above. Individually, we each registered the presence of the puddle, then noted oncoming traffic, and — the Temptations couldn’t have choreographed it any better — in unison we each shuffled backward three paces to get ourselves out of the splash radius! Get ready, get ready!
