crossing

i cross intersections kitty-corner. Otherwise, you’ve got to cross two streets, waiting for the walk signs, so forth. plus this way there is always a green light (and a red one too but I choose the green one). there are intersections in boston, like by beth isreal, where the lights are set for kitty-corner crossing, but this is rare in the usa.

one day on the way to work I passed a beautiful red-haired woman crossing the other way. we nodded. the next day I said “kitty-corner.” she said “katty-corner.” that’s as far as we have gotten in our relationship.

  1. Beginnings are wonderful things. You have overcome inertia x 2 in this case. Good story.

  2. I said “kitty-corner” when I was a kid. Somewhere along the way it became “katty-corner.” No idea why. 🙂
