I have seen a long-haired man skateboarding down the artery of town wearing a black cape and carrying a (presumably plastic) machete.
I have seen a homeless man doing a poo on the curb of the same main street with his bead-wearing Jack Russell by his side.
I have seen a woman clad in a shiny purple mini dress whiz by on her bicycle while holding her bull-dog with one arm and shouting “I’m late for court” over and over.
I have seen another bicyclist ride through campus during rush hour while eating noodles with chopsticks.
And now I have seen a middle-aged woman order croissants from the bakery with a towel still on her head, hair dripping away.
Another less exotic, but equally fabulous, spotting this week was an 8 week old Husky who conveniently delayed my trip to the library by half an hour, a half an hour less of test-cramming that was worth every last second.
But, besides taking a midterm exam, having a xray on my kidneys (more on that later), going to the bakery with my friend, playing with a puppy, and dreaming of one day having my own dog that, coincidentally, I plan on naming Bo, I have been spending a decent amount of time putting together nourishing meals and snacks. For example, here are yesterday’s eats:
Between afternoon snack and dinner, I squeezed in forty-five minutes of spinning, which flew by because I was excited to try out my new cycling shoes. It felt great to get in a solid sweat on the bike as during my knee injury, I couldn’t last 2 minutes in spinning class. And I tell ya, cycling shoes are pretty pricey, but boy are they worth it: no more erroneous knee action..
Tomorrow brings an early morning run, class, library time, baby time at the place where I volunteer, and good food time. As for now, it’s bedtime. keep posted on my kidneys!
