Who will be in the woods?
Is it too dark/too early/too late to be taking this walk?
Is it a bad idea to be wearing these headphones?
Does someone know I’m out here?
Is that parked car suspicious?
Are those two guys sitting inside that car suspicious?
What would I do if they got out and started chasing me?
Would I scream?
Would I run?
Would I be able to run fast enough without my inhaler?
Would they say I was asking for it because I’m wearing these black yoga pants and this cut off sweatshirt?
Would I try to talk them out of it?
Would I lie and say I had my period?
Would I lie and say I had AIDS, like I saw in a movie once?
Would they believe me?
Would they have a gun?
Would my dog even understand if I was in trouble?
Would she attack them?
Would she run home and get help, like Lassie?
Would I fight tooth and nail?
Would I succumb and let it happen?
Would I survive?
What would I tell my friends and family?
Would they question why I was on this walk?
Would they scold me for going alone?
Would they say I should have carried that pepper spray with me?
Would they say I should have known this could happen?
What was that noise?
Is someone behind me?
Should I take out these headphones?
Should I walk faster?
Am I almost out of the woods?
