I thought taking a constitutional on the main road is hazardous with the callous traffic of all kind, especially the drivers/owners of luxury cars whizzing past you giving you a jerk all the time. But I was proved wrong because accidents can happen wherever you are, even while walking in a private lane where just a handful of houses are situated with some owners boasting of pets. It is said once bitten ,twice shy but in my case it seems to be an exception. The other day ,while on my morning walk, suddenly I felt some object landing on my head and I screamed so loud fearing it would attract the attention of everyone living in the lane. After getting over the initial shock, I looked around for the culprit and found one dried branch (fortunately quite small) fallen from the big tree along side the wall which chose my head to briefly halt before falling down. I didn’t know whether to be happy or sad that my screams could attract only the pet dog of one of the owners.
It happened again, this time right inside my own house when in a hurry to step out for my constitutional, I hit my toe against a steel chair so hard that my poor toe is left red and swollen and paining ofcourse. Now, all that I can do is to console myself that some people are accident prone!
