As you read this I hope one of two things are true:
1. I am currently on a fun bike ride.
2. I have already completed a fun bike ride.
I am writing this on Wednesday night in preparation for a ride in the predicted-to-be-cooler morning.
An Interesting Thing Happened After Lunch
Yesterday I met up with five soon-to-be-former coworkers for lunch at Minas on Delk Road. It was a delicious, albeit over-salted, lunch.
When we were all done we walked out to our cars and said our good-byes. As I was about to get into my car an old pickup truck pulled into the parking spot one away from mine and a Cobb County police officer pulled behind my car with the lights flashing. I looked at the officer and she said, “Please give me a minute”. What as I going to say?
After sitting in my hot car for a few minutes I felt that the coworkers who had not yet left might mistakenly think that I was in trouble with the law, so I got out and walked up to Mink’s Package Store to do a little shopping.
Even after spending time in Mink’s the situation hadn’t resolved itself; it appeared as if the male driver had been arrested, the female passenger eventually got into the second cruiser (not under arrest) that had arrived while I was in Mink’s, and a flat-bed tow truck was there to take away the pickup; not even the three large Trump decals in the rear window of the pickup could spare the Pennsylvania truck from the Cobb County law!
All in all my departure from lunch was delayed at least fifteen minutes, but I did add a six-pack of beer, a bottle of beer, and two bottles of inexpensive Pinot Noir to my booty.
A Tale Of Two Bites
I have been blessed to have a body that fends off all mosquito bites within fifteen minutes without experiencing any itching.
The same cannot be said for bites from red ants. A week ago last Tuesday, as I ill-advisedly walked bare-footed in a grassy area, I suffered six bites on my left food and three of the toes on that foot. As of today you can still see where the bites occurred as hardened red lumps. It may sound as if I am a bit of a hypochondriac, but I’m hoping that these do not result in permanent scars.
Have a great day friends.
