REALLY!?! Nah. Really?

These guys are really pushing the edge of the envelope, man.

i love how bewildered they are. “why wouldn’t you drive 4 or 5 blocks to get the paper? no one’s going to walk that far!”

….and that is why I don’t listen to local radio.

I’m exceptional – I manage to get fat without owning a car at all.

Listening to KDKA these days is akin to sitting on a sharpened stick. Not recommended.

I don’t blame cars, I blame laziness. I remember way back when, back in highschool, I once walked a whopping seven miles to attend a practice session for a local college play. I met one of my fellow students at the college cafe and she was just shocked that I walked so far. From that day forward, I always thought of her as lazy. LOL

Walking seven miles, even for something important, is pretty far out the curve. I mean, driving two hours to attend a practice session would be pretty crazy, so why isn’t walking two hours?

Well, it’s not like I was in the habit of walking that far for something important. I didn’t have a bike at the time and I didn’t have a ride so my choices were limited. It just struck me that she thought it was so obscure that I was willing to spend two hours walking in order to be somewhere. I really don’t think it’s an issue of how long it took, it was just the principle; she would have given me the same reaction if I took thirty minutes and biked there.

I once took a 1F Millvale bus, thinking it would get me to the McKnight Rd post office, but no, it was the 1F variation that *ends* in Millvale. Yep, seven miles on foot up Babcock Boulevard, in dress shoes and a necktie, in midsummer heat.

Not a bad bike ride (in fact, I’ll be doing it myself within the hour) but that’s a long blessed walk on a 90 degree day, carrying a package.

Ouch! Nothing like a long walk in dress shoes…
