August 24 – 2010

I took an evening jog tonight; one of those with little purpose other than burn a bit of time and a few calories. No hurry, no agenda. Why should it then matter when the subjects disregarded the ten foot wide paved trail on the other side of the street; instead optioning to share the 36 inch wide sidewalk with me? Because the city spends a ton of $ to create 10′ wide trails to accommodate bikes and strollers and 3-wide runners, etc….reason enough? Yet I trudge over into the chunky grass while not one, but two guys on bikes roll at me on the crooked 3′ wide sidewalk. My only hope is droplets of my toxic sweat spattered onto them as they whisked by, not even offering the standard courtesy nod.
