My fiance and I could not get over the fact that this women had charged into the street reckless abandoned. It wasn't until after she had left the view of my windshield I suddenly realized she had been wearing gloves, or rather articles of clothing that were presently, and unsuccessfully I might add, passing as mittens.
I needed to make a left turn which was unfortunate because the woman was still walking along the left side of my vehicle. She was no longer in danger of being struck by my vehicle or any other vehicle. It was now my turn to be the one put in danger by the situation. I found myself mesmerizer by this woman's choice of protective gear.
Much to the dismay of a biker wanting nothing more than to cross the road and continue with his journey, I was about to unfairly take his turn and not allow him to cross. I realized this and abruptly stopped my vehicle, signaling for him to make his way through the crosswalk.
This disheartened my fiance as my vehicle was now hanging into the lane of oncoming traffic and, what I remember to be, a Honda Civic was currently on a collision course for the passenger side of my vehicle.
Luckily everyone in this story emerged physically unscathed. This is perhaps not the case when we take into account the emotional and mental wounds that may or may not have been inflicted upon myself, my fiance, the biker, the driver of the Civic and any onlookers that happened to witness the unfortunate disaster, that will now and forever be known as, Sock Mittens.
If anyone in the DeKalb Ill area spots this individual, attempt above all else to avoid staring. Staring from a four-wheeled vehicle may hold results on par with that of texting while driving. Result of staring while undergoing any of the following activities is currently undetermined; flying a helicopter, riding a horse, eating, drinking, throwing a discus, operating construction equipment, unicycling, parasailing, pronking and monkey-baiting.
