I wonder why so many people list “walking” as an interest, yet when you’re actually walking around, there’s hardly anyone else to be seen. Walking, that is.

      RE: running into neighbors. I’m constantly running into people who recognize me because they “see me walking by their house.” So even if you’re not running into them, they may be looking out their windows at you.
