What does the above title mean? Half of it is in the indicative mood. The other part is in the subjunctive mood. May grammarians strike me silly if I am wrong. But I have never used the subjunctive mood in a title of a blog entry before. I thought it was high time that I did.
I saw an electric cyclist just about get wiped out by a bus this evening. The cyclist had creep onto the road waiting for traffic to give her space to cross. Where she stood, she took up a quarter of a lane. An oncoming bus only narrowly swerved out of the way to avoid hitting her.
Strangely enough it was this bus that I boarded to go home. On the ride, I saw a restaurant where the attendants were dressed in Red Guard uniforms. Now, you will see older men occasionally wearing shabby old green clothes and Mao cap. But the attendants I saw this evening were young and the uniforms looked brand spanking new. The restaurant is on Xicheng Road for those who care.
