Satisfaction comes in many forms

Posted: September 7, 2005 in Uncategorized

Driving to the Columns this evening, I saw some college kid and an old, very bent woman in a standoff on the sidewalk. He was on a mountain bike, she was on a walker, both commanding the narrow strip of pavement from their respective directions. Little by little, the bicyclist slowed until he was nearly falling over, and finally conceded their slow-motion game of chicken off of the sidewalk, even having to force past some bushes.

As he rode away, just before I drove off, I could see a big smile spread across the old woman’s face.
