Confession: I Am a Dummy

So, here’s a safety tip. Don’t run at night on a street with tall hedges. And that goes for both men and women. Your level of testosterone isn’t going to save you when some Dexter wannabe jumps at you with a syringe full of horse tranquilizer meant for pumping into your bloodstream.

In case you’re wondering, I am in fact the dummy who thought, Meh, it’s a safe neighborhood. Who cares if it’s a little dark? Then I started to get tired and realized I probably wouldn’t be able to get away if I came across some psycho—and psychos are everywhere, people. Adrenaline only gets you so far, which may or may not be far enough.

I’m not going to be a dummy again. If I get home too late, I’m not running.
