Darwinian Test

I was driving home tonight through the only partially lit streets of Lexington-- honest-to-goodness only driving 25 miles per hour--when out of the darkness loomed a skateboarder.

Dressed in near-black clothing with no reflectors. In the street.

Where I almost hit him because he was in the street, in the darkness, wearing near-black clothing with no reflectors. And thankfully, I hit the brakes and he skittered off to the sidewalk--safe. For now.

OMG, did you have heart failure or what?

No--more like annoyance on a grand scale! It was too fast for heart failure. But really, didn't this kid's parents teach him anything? I hope I'm doing a better job with my own kid. :-)
