Once when I was young, maybe about 17, I was taking a nightly walk when I saw a dog barking at me. I started messing with the dog when I heard a loud firm voice yell out to leave that dog alone. I was a bit intimidated. I was a timid youth, so I walked away automatically. I recall this memory from time to time. A bit of youthful indiscretion and timidness hunts me a bit.
