A Pointless Post

So I left the house shortly after 6 this morning to go for my walk. I was simultaneously walking along the sidewalk, messing with my MP3 player, and evaluating traffic flow from both directions to see when I could cross the street. It was still pitch black outside. I paused, intending to cross the street after a few more cars passed, then looked up and saw a man standing there, probably waiting for a ride. I was so surprised that I jumped/gasped/snorted. He smiled (probably trying not to laugh out loud) and said (I hope) something like, “Sorry I scared you.” Only I’m not really sure what he said because I was already listening to a program through my headphones. I mumbled, “That’s all right,” so I hope he didn’t actually say, “Good morning” or something, because then what I said would have made no sense. Bah. I’ll probably see the dude again, and he’ll think of me as the girl who snorted.
