It was a green arrow, and green always means go, and “don’t walk” always, always means don’t walk. But he walked. He ran. With his ipod drowning out the rest of the world he ran right in front of her car whilst she accelerated through the crosswalk. It was a green arrow, and green always means go. And her car struck him and sent him tumbling forward onto the asphalt. He was, of course, killed. That is, he ceased to be alive.
This was April.
