There were a few bits of garbage (paper cups and fast-food wrappers) strewn about the parking lot. Ordinarily, those items wouldn’t be a hazard, but the recent rain has turned them into a soggy mess – one that could become slippery.
Normally, I watch out for those hazards, but my attention was diverted by an on-coming car. Fortunately, I was able to recover—maybe this exercise is paying off—and avoid a fall.
When walking, watch out for those things that may slip you up, including painted crosswalks and roadways!
