Today was pretty cool. Gina's car is leaking oil so I took it to the shop for her (mech says more than likely oil pressure switch, cheap fix). She took my truck to work so I timed the trip to the shop so that she could pick me up on her way home. I had to leave the car.
Perfect timing, I called her when I was done. She said she was just about to leave and would pick me up at a Church's Chicken about 1/8 of a mile from the shop. I reached the rendezvous point and just kept walking. Heck, just saved a couple of bucks on a piece of chicken and a drink I didn't really need.
So I'm walking, pull out my phone to inform her I'm on the road Man! I figure I can walk towards the fwy to save her from having to drive across town. After I warm up, I lift the pace. Dang I was feeling good!
New rendezvous point, I just passed it!
So I call again hoping I don't get stopped for walking and talking on the cell.
Heck man, I was flying. I even passed 3 separate scary homeless people, one with a shopping cart. I was walking so fast I think I scared them. I could tell by the shocked "WhereTF did you come from" looks on their faces!
I made it all the way to the fwy exit where Gina would exit. I made it to the rendezvous 3 minutes before she go there. Then I got to stand there and watch her at the signal with a "wtf took you so long?" look on my face.
5 miles of exercise, a PB in walking, saved money on a piece of chicken and a drink, saved on gas and get to talk trash about how long I had to wait at the rendezvous point, 3 mintues.
This post means absolutely nuthin' other than life is sweet when you are willing to walk across town for funzies.
