I’m typically a point A to point B person. I don’t go walking in the city unless I have somewhere to go and then its either not a long walk, or I typically have someone with me. I never was out walking just to walk.
I am now.
We have a dog and she needs walked about three times a day.
I have discovered that any day its above 40 degrees and we’re not out obscenely early I can look forward to being harassed for merely being a woman on the street. I thought I had seen my prime for this sort of thing but noooooooooooo.
Apparently groggy, makeup-less overweight forty year olds can be targets.
Tits and ass are apparently all I need to possess to be hollered, whistled and shouted at with gems such as:
“Hey Baby, why don’t you smile? Aint you got a man?”
(not that pretty/thin women invite or deserve that either)
It’s usually a drive-by but this morning the guy was walking behind me.
I ended up letting him pass, crossing the street, and walking back home.
The dog shit on the kitchen floor.
You know what I hate?
That I either need to put up with it, take Kevin (fiance person I keep mentioning) or have him do it by himself.
I shouldn’t need to take protection, go out at 6am, or not go at all.
