throwing rocks

tonight i took a brain break and went for a walk. it was fairly eventful as a young boy threw a rock at me...he was a pretty good shot and hit me in the leg. he and his cronies hooted and hollered, and i kept walking. i guess you can't live in belfast for too long without being hit by some sort of projectile object......at least it was only a rock......

thought i would refrain--even though they were small there was about 8 of them. i don't think i could take more than 6 11/12 year olds. *grin* besides, they didn't have mits and i throw too hard for bare-handed catching *wink*

As a Belfast Child, I feel it my place to apologise to you for this experience in my city. (To such an extent that I had to create an account here). Some may say that it is not my place, but it is my need. I hope that the remainder of your stay and experiences in my city are positive and hospitable. I at least welcome you to our city, if nothing else I hope he threw it with dignity!

Ta "Dyv". please don't think that there are no breathtakingly wonderful experiences in your city which has so captured my heart. this could have happened in any city in the world. thanks for your concern. i hope you enjoy this country, city, and people as much as i do.
