I have a great car. Its a Subaru Outback all wheel drive. I bought it about a year ago and have enjoyed driving it ever since. The freedom of the open road. Now I’m on a new journey. One of a different type of freedom, and the next step is to live without a car. My car is now listed here on Craig’s List.
Yesterday I had an interview that was only three miles away from where I keep my boat. I gave myself plenty of time to get to my destination by bicycle, but unfortunately took a few too many wrong turns. I ended up riding eleven miles…I think. I’m still not sure exactly how many. An eleven mile bike ride isn’t too far, but it becomes waaaay too far when I am pedaling in a panic, pressed for time, and trying not to sweat too much in my only set of interview clothes that have to last for a while because I still don’t have access to laundry facilities.
I stopped to ask for directions three times. On the third time I walked into a Scottish bakery that I had passed once already. Huffing and puffing, I unzipped my jacket, took off my helmet, and asked the clerk for directions. Soon, everyone in the shop was helping me, trying to explain where I was and where to go. I must have had appeared distraught because it wasn’t long before a kind woman shuffled me into her car and another couple threw my bike in their truck bed. Off we went and only a few moments later I arrived almost an hour late for my interview. And the simple life continues to find complications.
Please buy my car quick before I start to second-guess this decision!
