Or maybe just a pessimist. I was a few blocks from my place on this morning's walk and saw a guy in the street with a huge remote control car. Immediately, I thought, this is going to be annoying. Nothing had happened yet, but I knew.
I guess even just him being in the middle of the street was a start. Volunteer Park's just a few blocks away and there's a lot of road there that's always closed to cars. Of course, the park's not open that early, but whatever.
So anyway, I just got past him and was heading north, and the car zoomed past me. Yup, it was annoying. Surprisingly loud, which is super inconsiderate at 4:30am in a very dense residential neighborhood.
Once it was really far away, he tried to turn it around, hitting a car. And the car's alarm went off.
I knew it would be annoying.
I don't know why I never thought to before, but starting this year I'm saving all the holiday cat and dog pictures for Christmas day. Mostly I mention it in case you wonder why there aren't any the next few Saturdays.
