  • Waiting for a ride

January 4, 2010 – first day back


It’s 7:30 A.M. and I’m late, late.  It’s a cold windy morning with a line up of riders and not a ride in sight.  We all huddle and wait.  It’s hard to go back after the holiday break.  I move to the head of the line and turn down the ride – it’s a 2 seater BMW convertible.  I’m not ready for a race down the 80 freeway, and usually the small hot cars drive like they are. I pass the ride on to the lady behind me who happily takes it.

Here comes my ride  – a big older 4 door sedan.  I’m in the back seat and off we go.  Nice easy ride, but I could have used more heat.  Unbelievably, very light traffic (at 6 AM Channel 4 said the traffic was heavy).  I think I’ll be on time.
