I was out walking with Gretchen in the sling this afternoon & as we crossed the street (at the crosswalk) a huge dump truck started turning & inched a little too close to comfort. I tried to get his attention, to make eye contact or SOMETHING, but he seemed to be looking past me at the person on the sidewalk behind me. I'm really not sure he saw us at all.
I stepped up my pace to make sure we were out of the way & saw the looks on the faces of drivers stopped at the light. Everyone looked confused & a little horrified.
I flailed my arms at the dump truck driver and made some sort of scared sound, but he still didn't notice us.
Unfourtunately the license plate was too dirty to read (which is illegal, is it not?) so I have no way of tracking down the lovely chap.
My heart hasn't pounded that hard in a while. Definitely a scary moment.
