I am feeling so much better. Today I actually felt like myself again–the self I like hanging out with. I happily got on my bike and headed up to campus to meet with students and do a little grading. After a quick stop at home and an early dinner with R. I headed down to New Orleans Arena for the Hornets game, locking up to a kick-ass rack right by the doors. I got my ticket via one of those mass coupon machines that is made for the curious bachelorette like me. All I knew was I’d be in the balcony. I was seriously in the balcony. I just kept climbing and climbing, balancing my giant beer, until I finally just sat down. I’m not going to lie–I found it all a little overwhelming. And then the lights came down and the big screen (which was below me) showed a music video and then it was just ad after ad after ad with a little basketball thrown in. I found the whole thing overstimulating in a not-entirely=pleasant way. But the ride home was–over to M. & M.’s for a party, and then back home on empty streets. Oh, it felt so good.
I really enjoy your blog. You have motivated to bust out my old bike and enjoy the ride. Btw what camera are you using? Thanks
Thanks, Frank! Isn’t it great to just ride, no hurry? As for the camera, sometimes I use my phone, other times a Nikon point-and-shoot digital camera. I am most assuredly *not* a photographer!
