Mobile Squeals!

Today was a Mobile Meals delivery day.  Despite the heat and humidity, it was going pretty well until we got to the next to the last house on my route.  Keep in mind, this old woman "claims" she doesn't see well, and her old little dog (Sassy) tends to run out the door.  Therefore, she barely cracks the door and I pass the food to her through the small opening.
Sassy was doing her usual "on your mark, get ready" tap dancing (aka excited toenails against hardwood floors) so as the woman opened the door a little bit, I held my foot up to block the inevitable Sassy dart.
But Sassy didn't dart.
And to be INCREDIBLY tiny and slow, that little old woman had impressive speed as she snapped her cane and cracked me across the top of my foot!  I squealed and then she screamed.  The look on her face was priceless!  She saw my foot and thought it was the dog darting out and whacked it!
Luckily, the top of my sandal took the blunt of the blow-- but geez,  quick draw McGraw there had some serious cane speed!
