I took my bicycle down to the park this morning for a ride. As I was getting my shoes on, taking the bike out of the truck, and so on, I noticed that there were other people sitting in their parked cars, windows rolled up and air conditioners on. It’s otherwise pretty deserted in that part of town at that time of the morning, and I was wondering if there was a drug deal about to happen or somesuch.
But no, eventually another car showed up, and everybody got out of their cars, greeted each other, and took off on their jog. These must be the same people, I thought, that I see driving around the parking lot at the gym, looking for a spot that’s closer to the door.
