    I should make it back okay. There will be dangers such as traffic, and the possibility of a thief lurking around every corner ready to ask me to stick my hands in the air and simultaneously give him my phone and / or iPod, or inclement weather, or uneven paving slabs causing me to trip and and spend the weekend in hospital recovering from my injuries, or, you know, aliens might choose this morning to invade rendering my trip rather unimportant in the grand scheme of things.

    However, I expect I will be okay.

    It all went very well. No problems.

    Mission accomplished.

    Phew!

    I'm going to buy you a bottle of pepper spray, just so you don't have to fear the conditions the next time you return a video. We're taking the streets back from those punks!!!!!

    I was praying for you. I'll remove the yellow ribbon now.

    Thank-you all, but please remember to make it a blue ribbon next time.

    I'm off to go pee and get some coffee.

    I should make it back okay. There will be dangers such as the cats at the top of the stairs, and the possibility of a gang of ninjas lurking around every corner ready to throw shuriken into my skull, or an exploding bladder, or uneven being out of coffee, causing me to absolutely go ape-**** and punch the wall and spend my weekend in the hospital, or, you know, aliens might choose this morning to invade rendering my trip rather unimportant in the grand scheme of things.

    However, I expect I will be okay.

    I made it back, thankfully. Really didn't think the army of ninjas was all that likely until I was walking out of the bathroom. Terrifying.

    But it turned out to just be a poster.

    was it worth the dangers?

    I survived my coffee and peeing experience, for those who are interested.

    I was interested. I just assumed that your failure to update was because you hadn't survived.

    I was mourning you.

    Fortunately, I can stop that now.

    I'm sorry I put you through that, Chris. :(

    Don't be. The experience moved me to appreciate my own life a little more. I realised that I had been foolish. I vowed to not concern myself with the dangers of returning a rental DVD, but instead treasure the positive aspects of the exercise. For instance, I am now pleased that I returned the DVD on time, thus ensuring someone else who wants to rent it can, and that they don't instead spend the time robbing a convenience store. I am pleased that I breathed in fresh air on the journey, thus making a tree somewhere all the more necessary to the environment. I am pleased.

    Your level-headed view of the experience is precisely why you're on my WUL, my friend.
