on the way home I paused to talk
I was going to title this "damnit" but that seemed overly rough. Yesterday, on my way home from work, I was at a traffic light when a guy who looked like he might be homeless and was walking a modest old bicycle and wearing a top hat (!) approached me. This guy diffidently asked how much my bicycle lights had set me back. I said that a nice set could be purchased for under $20, less even. I wanted to say "meet me here at this time in a week and I'll give you some" but that seemed weak and unlikely. When I got home the lights I ordered had arrived, they look great and have a nice brightness. I would have loved to give that guy a set to light his way. Tonight though, I'm ready.
