The Better Part Of Valor

“Be careful,” Katie says before I ride my scooter to my doctor’s appointment. “It’s Friday and people drive crazy.”

Her words echo in my head as I ride past schools just getting out, and the yellow school buses jockey for position with black SUVs filled with parents picking up kids while the delivery trucks double park in the middle of the street.

I swerve around the traffic, turn down a side street and gun it, and as soon as I’m close enough to home, I just get off my scooter and walk.
