NOW THAT THE PRE-SUMMER HEATWAVE has broken, I can actually think without the brain swelling. I mean, come on, 39˚C with the humidex!?
Since today’s a more comfortable 14˚C, I decided that biking to the gym would be the way to go. First stop: pay some outstanding parking tickets at the local bank branch on the way.
So, there I am at the counter, helmet and windbreaker on (why bother taking all the gear off for a two minute errand?), water bottle and gloves on the counter, ready to pay the fines.
The young lady at the counter was training a new fellow, perhaps a summer student, and the attempt to make small talk as her protégé was debiting my account was “Going biking?”
I behaved myself accordingly.
