How many of us heard this while growing up?
“Well, if he jumped off a bridge, would you???”

In the late 1960s in Ithaca, NY, as I headed to my best friend Randy’s house about a mile up the road, my mom would instruct me, “Remember, Johnny, always walk against the traffic.”
I wonder if she was helping an 11-year-old stay safe or giving outstanding life advice—or both?
