Taking Things for Granted

Before our Kiwi adventures, I took for granted that crossing the street came naturally to me. When in NZ, I almost got hit by a car about 19 times a day because I DIDN’T KNOW WHICH WAY TO LOOK! I thought that by returning to Canada, I would become a confident pedestrian once again… but NOPE. I’m more confused than ever. While in NZ, not only did I promptly adjust to driving on the left side of the road, but I survived death defying activities such as river surfing, jet boating, white water rafting and bungy jumping. Upon our return to Canada, I quickly re-adjusted to driving on the right side of the road (for the most part) just fine… but crossing the street? Forget it. If I die before I’m 30, it’ll DEFINITELY be a car that takes me down.

I think I'm MUCH safer skipping through the vast expanse of a farmer's field with nary a road to be seen...

I am glad you have survived Canada thus far! Moved out of the parents place yet?

I am going to start taking it for granted that you did get hit, as it seems we are to get no updates on the new jobs!
