Weird time warp


During one elongated second today I watched three things happen, as if in slow motion.

I was at a stoplight. I looked to my right, and saw a grackle walking across a grassy area near the sidewalk. His head went back and forth in that bird-like way as his yellow feet moved forward. I looked up, and saw the traffic light turn red. I turned my head forward in time to see the light that I was facing turn green, and I stepped on the accelerator.

Who really knows if every second is the same length??
