Of straight roads and sudden surprises

Life has this strange habit. When you are walking down a road after dealing with things you think you had to, you suddenly realise that something is coming towards you in full speed. Something very big and quite powerful. The air is split apart by its sheer velocity and the molecules enter your ear and scream inside it. However, there is nothing much you can do as you are too scared and you simply duck. Only to realise that what has been sent is in fact a boomerang and that you would have been better off if you had stood up and caught it with your hands and hurled it back.
I only hope that what i see approaching is a boomerang and not a cannon ball. For as much as i trust my confidence, i know for a fact that i cannot catch a cannon ball with my bare hands. Or can I?
