Five and a half miles into my walk today I was passing McDonald's, and since they have all-size drinks for a buck, I paused my timer and went in to get a soft drink.
There was a guy in line ahead of me and he looked at me, looked puzzled for a moment, and then asked, "Haven't I seen you all over town today?"
I acknowledged that I'd walked a good part of it.
"Are you lost?"
No, not lost.
"Because if you are, I'll give you directions. I know where everything is around here."
The idea that I was just out walking seemed a little foreign to him, but at least he was nice enough to ask.
Because if I'd really been lost? Directions might be nice.
