Leaving town for a week turns me into some kind of superman.
After leaving work early with a pounding headache (heat exhaustion, I think)
I went home and scrubbed and cleaned, cooked and froze the last of the CSA
greens so they wouldn't spoil, secured and mailed bundles of crisp sequential
bills for my nieces (birthdays June 6 & 11), found and instructed
a catsitter, sold a tool belt via craigslist, paid some bills, wrote a thank
you note, superglued some broken things, did a load of laundry, bought a
book and trailmix for the trip, packed, played with Miso, and even put brand
new laces in my boots.
I caught the 9:38pm #26 bus downtown and waited in the transit tunnel to
transfer to 194 airport express. To my surprise and delight an unfamiliar
bell clanged and a Sound
Transit light rail test train came down new tracks, pausing at the
platform to take on and disgorge phantom passengers. Service begins in July
and like a properly proud citizen (some would say foamer) I intend
to ride on opening day whether or not I have anywhere to be.
