Wishes, Lies and Dreams #10
I used to like slogging and when I see people zipping down the street in front of my house, I always think, "Well done, you!"
For the most part, I have fond memories of plugging away down the open road.
But I also wish I could slog a little faster because every time I used to slog people would stop their cars and ask, "Do you need help?" or sometimes they stopped their cars and yelled out, "Good for you! You're really trying!" The constant interactions with kind strangers really slowed me down.
I wish people wouldn't talk to me or look at me when I'm slogging. But because of my slowness, I really stand out. On average, people stop me 8 to 9 times every time I slog. So sometimes I think it's just not worth it.
