RAVE To the young lady who paid for my meal out, handing me a note that said, “I wanted to make someone happy with my Christmas money. Hope this makes you smile. Have a great year!” I thanked her for her warm and generous heart. What she couldn’t have known is that I’d recently celebrated my 69th birthday solo, alone after the death of my partner in December 2012. The Cosmos is smiling.
RANT To the bike rider who pulled up next to me in the street to yell at me, do you really think I wanted to come close to hitting you, or whatever you were ranting about, as I came out of a parking lot? You might want to reconsider your bike-riding attire and add some lights and/or reflective materials. Hitting someone on a bike is not on my to-do list.
