We had a wonderful prelim for Black Friday. Some people suggested getting a Black Friday ride together but it didn't happen. I went out to enjoy a beautiful, and brisk afternoon.
The MUP's were quite inviting since there was traffic everywhere else. One could actually get up on the pedals and ride for fun while the masses huddled in the malls. No multi-taskers walking their dogs, strolling their babies while jogwalking, listening to their ipods and texting former schoolmates; it's hunting season, the deer, with their good sense, were elsewhere. It was a serene afternoon.
On the way back I decided to run past the mall to witness the madness over coffee as I warmed.
Oh, there were people in those cars, and they all went inside, together. Now I get it!
I turned tail to run and on my way from the parking lot and through the adjacent commercial areas I realized to my horror that Rob Ford may have been right.
It is like swimming with sharks!
