wild and wonderful

Few days ago Ming and I were in our Echo waiting to turn left at a red light.  The light turned green, and Ming hesitated.  I was thinking, "Why are you hesitating?" and said nothing.

Then I saw a car fly through the intersection, running their red light.  If Ming had gone, when our light turned green, we would have been t-boned.

I was elated to be alive.  I was so grateful to Ming for his defensive driving.  I wanted to give him a treat but couldn't think of one.

And that's the wild and wonderful thing.  Thanks for reminding me, Mr Ming.
