This morning, I got the dreaded flat tire on the way to work. What's worse, I somehow misplaced my mini-pump so that it wasn't in my backpack. That meant I had no way to fix my tire. I walked across the street to a bus stop, hoping that it would arrive, but I it never came. I had to walk down to Smith's to buy a new mini-pump and finally made it to work around 10:15. Oh well - I still enjoy doing the outdoor commute and not being a slave to an automobile - I just need to plan better.
