Today, I had to deliver some cards in a nearby neighborhood. It was lovely outside. There is construction happening in the nearby neighborhood, so delivery by bicycle seemed the perfect idea. I couldn't find one of the addresses. Each time I thought I was close, I had to wrap around a block to get to the other side. I ended up traversing across an old field that used to be a drive-in movie theater. As soon as I reached the sidewalk, I saw trouble. Goatheads. Covering both tires.
Goatheads are evil. At least rose thorns are accompanied by a flower that is not only beautiful, but also smells wonderful. Even a cactus is a pretty plant. What do goathead weeds have to offer?
The bad news:
1) I never did find the house.
2) I have to buy two new tubes.
3) I ended up walking home with this.
The good news:
1) It was a short walk.
2) It was perfect weather.
3) I know a guy who can fix this. I'm pretty sure he'll give me a discount.
