Boo got shot

An interesting thing just happened that left me reflective on how we perceive things. I was walking to my car in a deserted shopping center at 11pm. A black SUV starts driving towards me, a little faster than normal which makes me nervous. As is approaches me I hear a deafening *POP*. I duck because I think someone is shooting at me. As the car drives away I see they ran over a soda can and feel silly.

You don't sound silly to me. Such things are too often real.

I don't like the desterted shopping center at 11 PM part - you should be carrying MACE in that situation. I try not to be in a shopping center after about 9:30.
