One-Liner Wednesday: crossing

I appreciate that the pavement at a lot of the pedestrian crossings in London is marked “LOOK RIGHT” or “LOOK LEFT” to keep those of us used to traffic flowing in the opposite direction from getting hit by vehicles.

        1. We are happy to be here visiting my daughter and her family. We are watching the Jubilee festivities on BBC One. Someday, when the pandemic is finally calmed down, we hope to visit some of the museums and other sites.

            1. I am from the Northeast US, growing up in rural Massachusetts and living as an adult in Broome County, New York, along the border with Pennsylvania. My son-in-law is a Londoner; he and my daughter met and married while attending graduation school in Hawai’i and now live in London with their two daughters at his parents’ house.

              1. How lovely I am so pleased that you are here to stay with your daughter and family. I really hope you have a lovely time. I was born in Chiswick, bought up in Brentford and Ealing, married my husband who lived in Ealing we now live in Berkshire not far from Windsor .

                1. I admit that I’m not used to big cities but am learning to navigate in east London, the Plaistow/Stratford area. We are only here through next Tuesday. On Monday, granddaughter ABC will turn five!

                    1. Glad you are close for frequent visits. ABC, who lived with us in the States until she was two waiting for E’s spousal visa to come through, is always excited to see us but it’s confusing for JG, who is 22 months, to see these people from a computer screen suddenly show up in person.

    1. You still wind up looking both ways but a lot of the crossings have an island in the middle, so you are looking only one way at a time. The problem, of course, is that we Americans are used to watching for the most immediate oncoming traffic on the left rather than the right. I’m also training myself to look over my shoulder when I cross small side streets to watch for turning vehicles.
