    Another Story of the Big, Bad City

    It happened just last Wednesday. I was on my way home, sitting in a bus, impatiently waiting for the traffic to move. When I got to my stop where I was supposed to change bus, I got off in a manner I thought was my usual. But I guess I bent a little too far and I felt...
