My foot feels much better this morning than it did yesterday, and, although not quite back to normal, is well on the way to mending. There is, however, a detail which I left omitted from my entry yesterday which I've been urged by my friends to address. When I was going down the road, heading for the zebra crossing, I passed some kids who like to try to taunt me. This may have caused me to speed up. I try to ignore it - reacting in any way only encourages them. Yet it gets to me: they see me as a source of fun; it feels as if they think they have a right to belittle me. I suppose it gets to me. On Sunday they were out in force, acting as if they were gangsters owning the streets, when in fact they're just little twerps with no idea what the real world is like. They had been doing it all day, and it was getting irritating. I was therefore trying to get to the park as quickly as I could, and that may have had a causal effect on what happened. As I say, I was going to ignore it, but I've been encouraged by my friends to write about this aspect of what happened.
