I slept with the bedroom window open last night. After being awakened by the sound of an owl at 4:45am, I was temporariliy further awakened by the sound of an animal’s response, the likes of which I cannot identify. This creature has the yell of an animal in a zoo. Wait, has the zoo lost a monkey recently? Who knows what sort of animal could survive in my backyard jungle. I was going to attempt to record the sounds, but they stopped after the first call and response.
I must not have been too concerned because I was able to go back to sleep nearly immediately, only to be awakened by my alarm clock at 5:30am, and then fall back asleep for another thirty minutes.
I’m Walking Over Here
Though I continue to whine about pain on a daily basis I am making progress. At lunchtime yesterday I hobbled down to Savi Provisions, who don’t carry burrito wraps, and then wound my way to Publix on Spring. Hey, did you know that Publix opens at 6:45am? 🙂
By the time I hobbled back to “XYZ Corp” I had covered 1.5 miles. This is far and away the furthest I have gone since my bike fall.
I added additional yardage onto my total yesterday afternoon when I found out that Octane had a disappointing slim selection of beers in stock, so I walked to Front Page News for a beer with dinner prior to German class.
A Little Follow Up
Yesterday I referenced Rio Shopping Center (aka Rio Mall). I found this great blog post about Rio. Atlanta old-timers, like me apparently, should read this post as it may jog a memory or two.
A New Memory Will Be Made Tonight
Tonight there will be wining, not whining.
The original plan was to meet Betsy and Terri at a place called “Poor Hendrix”; inexplicably this place is closed on Wednesdays. Instead, I will be making my first trip to “Dish Dive” instead. I have a bottle of wine in the car because I have been told that Dish Dive is BYOB.
In addition to hanging out with friends, I organized this meetup so that I can return Terri’s crutches, on which I thankfully no longer rely.
More on our dinner tomorrow.
Good Wednesday to you!
