Dear Tasman District Council…

I waited for a good 20 minutes but no people were oncoming.

I know that I probably broke some by-law by proceeding, but it was chucking it down like a cow p1ssing on a flat rock, so I pretended that people were in fact oncoming, gave them a robust “Gdayhowzitgoinshitweatheraye” just in case (got a weird look from the non-oncoming sheep, have to say..) and proceeded directly to Nelson hospital, where I ‘m now recovering from pneumonia.

The doctors reckon that if people hadn’t been oncoming for another 10 minutes or so and had I not shown such presence of mind, I’d have been a goner…
