There was a time when a young Ryan would ride out onto the streets looking for vengeance in the form of drunken mayhem, but I like to think I have come quite a ways from my younger, more compulsive self...
So... this weekend I was assaulted by a hornet, but tonight I was assaulted by PECO... the local power provider.
I am such a nice guy now it is actually giving me another myocardial infarction... Anyways... Im finding a silver lining on things lately.
So, the silver lining is this... I was going to take today off from working out because I had hit it hard with the surgeon general each the past 3 days. We did the running, swimming, biking, running... it was a lot of good exercise. I figured today is as good a day as any... well with the absence of good television to keep me occupied, i figured I would get hydrated and hit the gymski.
I did a nice 40 minute bike and some strength training. I'm feeling pretty good about the whole excursion... although I am afraid I am becoming nicer looking, less intimidating, or possibly these locals are just whacked in the head.
People never used to approach me with ridiculous questions about directions or how to use a machine in the gym. I was once told, "you always look like you have a chipon your shoulder. Like you're angry. And when you wear sunglasses... everything about you says, 'leave me alone'."
I must have lost that, because people are stopping and talking to me left and right.... i dunno. anyways... i'll get back to you on how I feel about that, because right now I am miffed about this power thing and I want to say, "get away from me crazy people", but at the same time I am glad that I don't look like some psycho all the time... I'll let you know.
in the mean time... everyone with power enjoy yourself.
