  1. Maybe it’s just me, but this one seemed more funny and whimsical than usual.

    I love the atmosphere here, but am stuck on it being ‘who’ in the last line. Is that just me?

    • Sean Lynch says:

      The subject I is implied in the beginning, as in I am walking, so the whom applies to the object which is the old woman. At least that’s what I thought was correct, although I don’t want it sounding affected.
