Cold weather cycling part dos

This morning it was 15 degrees when I left the house. I decided that 20 wasn’t that bad, so why not give 15 a shot? I was pretty comfortable. Of course, Speak Out Jerk probably wasn’t comfortable with having me there — the same guy called again about what a danger I am.

Considering I’ve changed my route so that I’m only on W road for about 2 miles now, this guy must just have the worst luck in the world. I’m thinking that I should just write another letter and ask him to put this sign on his car:


Then when I see him in my mirror, I can just pull over and stand on the shoulder to let him go by. I don’t want him to go to any trouble to accommodate me.

Meanwhile, last night was the first rehearsal for Choral Union. Turnout was light, but it looks like interesting music. We’re doing Dove’s “Koethener Messe” (in Latin) and Beethoven’s “Hallelujah from Christ on the Mount of Olives.”  The music hasn’t come in yet for the Dove piece, but we rehearsed the Beethoven, which has some interestingly weird chords, etc. Should be fun.Â

    Jerk said, “It’s dark, and this guy’s got a flashing light on. It’s a danger.”

    Huh? Does he mean that he’d prefer you not have a light so he would have an excuse for hitting you?

    Also, I enjoyed the “low TV standards” comment about how women on TV show almost all of their breasts. I agree. Women should show no more than three of their breasts.

    I couldn’t quite figure out why the flashing light was a danger either. It is true that people who have observed this taillight in person say they feel like they’re being pulled over, so maybe he means that he almost initiated a high-speed chase.

    And yep, that “low TV standards” comment was right on the mark. It IS no wonder we’re mired in a war for no good reason and the stock market is tanking, what with women showing that many breasts. However, I think what is needed is for them to show ALL of them, however many that might be. I’m a scientist, so I need to know.

    Oh. I assumed the TV comment was sarcasm. Not so? That’s sad.

    I’m afraid that most of the Speak Out public is severely sarcasm-impaired.
