Ten Things I Did, Other Than Walk to Work, While Walking to Work Two Days Ago

As part of our "Ten Lists in Ten Days" special feature, we here at Big Dave and Company are bringing you ten different helpful and/or informative lists on each of the first ten days of November.


1.)  Glanced sheepishly at the girl that I see every morning warming up her car.

2.)  Stared at the dinner special at Taco Joe's and wondered how the specials can last until 6 pm when they close at like 5 pm.

3.)  Slowly wandered across the street while a garbage truck tried to make it past.

4.)  Stared through the fog wondering when the Courthouse would actually appear through it.

5.)  Shook the dewdrops off the pine trees all over myself.

6.)  Kicked a tennis ball that I assume belonged to a dog across someone's lawn.

7.)  Watched the same three people that I see every day dropping their kids off at the day care center.

8.)  Stared at the same shitty old Dodge Stealth that I look at every day and wondered why it was parked in the driveway instead of in the street like normal.

9.)  Looked in the window of a house because for the first time ever since I've started walking past the shades were open.  It was someone's living room but they were not home.

10.)  Almost got hit by both a kid in a Grand Am and a guy in a truck.  I usually get nailed by the morning drivers.

Well done, sir. You never realize how much stuff actually does happen on an every day basis.

lol I was sitting quietly in a small smokefree pub and three halarious blokes walked in and made my day. My cheeks hurt.
