  • My shoelace got caught in the spokes of my tricycle and I fell over.

    The mailman got out of his truck and came over to help me.

    I really liked the mailman. I had been in the process of trying to pedal over to him.

    When he left the truck and came towards me, I remember being surprised. I didn’t realize he could leave the truck; I thought he lived there.
