Yes, I will be making the trek from work to home, and I will encounter wonderful things along the way. I plan on taking the sunniest route possible. I also find myself tempted to take off my shirt and just cruise the streets; unfortunately my modesty requires I leave on my undershirt. I have a feeling that by the time I leave here, however, the fog will have rolled in and I will need my shirt, anyway. Sigh. What kind of summer is this?! One where you have to wear shirts?! Gah. GAH! I defy you foggy summer! I DEFY YOU!
Ok, enough smiting…moving on… yes Walking! Glorious walking! How lucky I am to live in place where I can walk from work to home. Sure it will take me about an hour, but just think of all the encounters I’ll have along the way. I’ll probably smell plenty of urine,
and see countless kinds of people,
Maybe I’ll stop and get a drink? What kind of drink?
A bubble tea with tapioca?
A Veitnamese ice coffee?
Mexican Coke in a bottle?
A tall boy of Bud Light?
Then I’ll be off, up the hills I’ll charge, through the brightly flagged streets of the Castro
and down the slopes of the lower Haight.
Oh look, an open air produce market!
How convenient! I need to buy some tomatoes for eating
and some fruit for snacking.
I wanted grapes earlier and now here they are!
Thank you kind shop owner, here’s your money and off I go! Walking!
Oh! The bike shop just called. Looks like I’ll be riding home after all….
