Just walked home in the clammy, horizontal rain, trying to keep a package dry. I passed a barefoot, 15-16 year-old girl in a bride's maid dress, sprinting after a yippy dog and crying out hysterically. 20 yards behind, followed her barefoot family.
I tried to say you shouldn't chase a dog if you really want to catch it. But they weren't hearing it. Should have kicked off my shoes and helped.
