I went for my swim at noon yesterday. A couple of weeks ago, I started to walk home after each swim and have my SO pick me up en route after about 20 minutes. Yesterday, I walked through the top part of the school yard/soccer field at about 1pm. I thought lunch would be over for the public school kids, but they were all over the yard/field in little groups. I didn't want to turn around and go back up the hill, but I didn't want to walk through them all either. I just had to get to the path where I could start looking for my ride. So I walked through everyone, waved hello to the teacher-on-duty and kept going. I smiled at every kid that looked my way and kept going. I didn't want to hear any comments, and for the 5-6 minutes it took me to get across the field, I didn't. No one made any rude comments. My heart was thudding, but it didn't happen. I got across without any problems. Except the tightness in my shins from hoof-ing a bit faster than usual. Well, thanks for listening.
