Just a Thought: Shortcuts
by Jordy Greenblatt
Whenever I’m walking and I see a “NOT A THROUGH STREET” sign, I take it as a challenge. I’ll search every nook and cranny for an alley to go through or a fence to climb. Unfortunately it’s usually not intended as a challenge and I wind up looking like an idiot when I knock on someone’s door and sheepishly ask if I can cut through their yard. But I look like even more of an idiot when they inevitably slam the door in my face. I think there’s a moral in there somewhere.
