Tumultuous Thursday

Photo: Hybridzilla sits outside the coffee shop, lights twinking. Much attention was focused on the bike as I quaffed my caffeinated callibogus, looking for reactions.

Today was wrought of chaos. First, I forgot my cell phone at home, which meant very limited Internet access downtown. Sure, I could have posted via e-mail from work. I am geeky enough to have that feature enabled, and it wouldn't be the first time I've done it. I decided to let it slide.

Work was a mad-house. Nothing worth talking about, but this is usually a slow time of year for my group so this is kind of a surprise to me. I finished up my day early by going to the HR office to pick up my December bus pass, then rode to Union Station to catch the MAX bus to Waldo.

I haven't spent any actual time in Waldo in probably a decade. I've been near the area recently, but never on bike. It's actually a nice little place. I surfed the streets, winding through little neighborhoods to get to 79th, then went west until it became Somerset. From there, I was home free to the dentists office.

My last dentist was a jackass. He thought there was nothing wrong with my tooth's root while I was concerned about an abscess. "Definitely a sinus infection or something else." My ass. This dentist located and clearly showed me the abscess, which is exactly what would have caused my swelling and high fever back in September. So, in the next few weeks, I get to have a root canal and my tooth rebuilt yet again. Huzzah.

I escaped the dental chair at about 4:30, just in time to get blinded by the sun on my way home. I'm really glad I took Hybridzilla out today. If the Sorrento is a mountain goat (and it is, in every sense imaginable) then Hybridzilla is a Greyhound. It's not super-fast, but it's efficient and graceful. It lacks the refinement of my road bike, but keep in mind I'm comparing it to the Sorrento that I've been using for a few weeks straight.
