Walk, Run & Chase

Goals transform a random walk into a chase.

Walk aka man in a box

The most common pedestrian signals are pictographs. An image of a person walking or standing stationary. In the United States, some signals use the English words "Don't Walk" and "Walk" instead of pictographs.

Run aka summer exercise

run
faster
almost there
ice cream truck’s gone…
…fuck


Despite its long, racist past, the well-known tune, "Turkey in the Straw," has rung through the speakers of ice cream trucks and into American neighborhoods for decades.

Chase aka pot of goals

chase
that goal
to its end

      1. Ha! No, we happened to have a sunny day out and my oldest has been obsessed for a few weeks now with getting an ice cream from an ice-cream van! I tried to wave it down then ran around 3 estates looking for it and kept missing it! 🀣🀣🀣

      2. Kids and their obsessions. Mine have had the same thing this year. I guess their little legs are big enough now to catch it.
        Kids didn’t let you go to the store in defeat?
        Maybe there will be an ice-cream truck at the end of your rainbow.
        I haven’t seen a real ice cream truck in years. All they have here are boxes off the back of trucks, no hand made gelato.

      3. Oh I reckon if my girls could chase after it themselves they would. No, store ice cream just wouldn’t do! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I hope so. πŸ™πŸ€ž We’re in Autumnal mode now so the chances of another visit from the ice-cream truck are getting slimmer by the day. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜›

    πŸ’Ž I met a man running while I was strolling; he paused as we engaged and explained he was running to loosen his back…running is a bit like a drug and I did not have the heart to explain Sacral Energy Centre Activation; in the context of My PAM (Perception Attitude MindSet) for Me PAT (Patience Acceptance Tolerance) is incredibly important, sure I do jog from Time-To-Time and I AM a Sprinter but My Favourite Thought Experiment is a Little Fat Girl racing Usain Bolt and He jogs behind HER!!! encouraging HER!!! to The Finish Line so SHE!!! Wins

  3. My friend drove an ice cream truck after high school. He used to blare the Dead Kennedys song β€œHoliday in Cambodia” from the loudspeaker to repel the children. Ironically, my friend received a promotion to fleet manager.
