Bet It Does

Yes, I rode to work today.

And, he was coming out of the Courthouse as I was entering. He wore a beautiful and freshly pressed white linen suit. He was dressed flawlessly. I was holding open the outer door for him to exit. He was holding open the inner door for me to enter. Standoff. He was most insistent I go first. I finally agreed, after all one of us had to cave or we might have been there all day. As I passed him I said, "This doesn't feel right. Where I come from a suit trumps a playing card."

"Maybe so," he responded, "But, I think your get up looks really cool."

I couldn't resist responding, "Actually, it keeps me rather warm."

He laughed, "I just bet it does."

On this morning's commute, it looked like Norton, the North Star Penguin was staying plenty cool. (Click here to watch Norton play) Personally I don't like ice cream, but I suspect for North Star business is good summer.
  • 83F/28C with a few clouds for the ride to work.
  • 106F/41C with a few clouds and plenty of sunshine for the home ride.
