Cracks in the sidewalk

Posted by me on Tuesday, the 17th day of July, anno domini 2007 at 12:15 AM, local time.

So, just a short note here to apologize for my laziness and mention the fact that I am way too old to be concerned with stepping on the cracks in the sidewalk. And yet, today, I found myself carefully altering my pace and each step to avoid walking on any sidewalk cracks. At work, walking back after Coffee Walk, the cracks were pretty regular, and I had to keep pace with my friends while at the same time avoiding bringing their attention to my strange gait. Later today, the sidewalk cracks were rather irregular, as it was more of a curb extension than a sidewalk, and the cracks were regular in some places but irregular in others, where the curb concrete needed to match other bits of concrete and to match gutter grates and the like. But, as I was by myself, I could be more erratic in my gait correction, as it were.

Seriously, I do probably have a problem here, but I don’t know how to fix it, or who to go to for therapy for such issues. Ah well, I’ll make do. Please don’t judge me. =-)

    Sidewalks are full of microscopic cracks you can’t even see. What are you going to do?
