In a way, this has been a good experience for me. At home, I never really thought too much about pedestrians. Or too much about other cars around me. Just the road, and oh how I loved the road! Ok, I've definitely been called a maniac while driving. One instance that comes to mind is almost trampling some lovely people downtown after the St. Jude Marathon a few years back. From the look in their eyes, I'm pretty sure they did not think I was lovely. Woops. I guess I'm saying that I didn't ever appreciate "pedestrians right of way" until having to be Frogger. And I mean, I've definitely been a pedestrian at home, too. Crossing West End Avenue in front of Towers can be horrendous because Nashville drivers can be downright inane. But I think it's that the fact that pedestrians have absolutely no rights here that makes me feel like being a little bit more safe the next time I drive a car. That's all.
By the way, what's up with Memphis not being a No. 1 seed?
