A silent patrol can mean many things. No crime, no activity. It feels like a brisk walk. But a level of complacency can a lead to somewhat of a disaster that no one expects. That patrol was a quiet one. Even thou it was fall, there was a full crescent moon, something that reminds that anything can happen. As I crossed one street, someone called "Batman." If I keep hearing that, I'll start thinking I'm my personal hero. I passed Ashmont Station, & I saw a gathering. However the T Inspector was handling it. What add too much cooks. I decided to try different routes. A street I never been on, stuff like that. As I crossed an area, I was about to cross the street, however I saw a young man walking hastily. Knowing his body language I knew he was very nervous. If I crossed I would've continued down, but at the same time I would make that person so uncomfortable he'd do something reckless. And the way I'm dressed, I would spook Luke Skywalker (or the Joker, depending on Mark Hamill's wishes.) So I cut it off. I managed to go down a side street besides the park at Fields Corner. My previous patrols in that area showed some kind of activity, I thought I'd give it a better look. Fortunately, nothing happened, it was as silent as Royals Stadium during the postseason. I managed to pass a man who heavily smoking a cigarette as an older man wearing noise proof headphones was heading out. He said, I wasn't that scary. I said, "Maybe I should try harder." He said thou, "You look cool thou." As I passed Ashmont Station I saw a Table Talk box on the bench. I picked it up & put it in the trash. The first thing I thought, was Spongebob Squarepants impressing the Jellyfishers saying, "Everybody like pie." (God! that was awful.). I looked at areas where I could improve & I feel stronger that I can be better. I hope next time I don't fall into a false sense of security.
