This morning I left home at 7a.m. and had the luxury of having the front light on the blinky mode for the whole hour. Yes, spring is coming. It felt a bit disconcerting at first as I have become used to an early warning of a car behind me showing my elongated silhouette in front long before I hear the engine.
At lunch, I rode up to the dentist to have a rotten tooth taken out. The 14mm root made it difficult to pull. Biting down on the gauze on the way back to work made things tender for a while and not being able to breathe through my mouth made an uncomfortable change.
I left for home later than planned. The only blinky in sight was my rear light. It was mild and I was over dressed in 3 layers including my winter jacket. Tomorrow’s forecast is for the same dry mild. It’s time for shorts.
