In the universe where I had stepped-out in front of it.

Without thinking, I plucked the small piece of foil from within the Fridge Pak(tm) container. I was just about to toss it in the rubbish bin when I thought: 

Why am I making this action?
could I cause something bad by doing this?
might my wife wish this smallish bit of metal to have been left in there?
was i in fact setting forth some action, or perhaps...

I thought back a few years earlier when I had nearly been killed stepping off a curb, by a bus. A nice woman , and sensible, warned me a few moments before I went.

It wasn't that close of a call, I guess. When you look back at it though, the fear of seeing that big thing fly by me made me feel as though I had diverged that day.
