My commutes have been blessedly uneventful lately. The weather has been unusually warm, in the high 50s and low 60s. Today I brought a jacket I don't expect to need. I wore a t-shirt and a dress shirt over it. I see people wearing winter clothes. Why?

Of course, irritating things do happen. Last week, I was riding uphill around a double-parked truck, and some dude came right towards me, riding against traffic. As we got close, I had no idea if he planned to go left or right, so I nearly stopped dead, and I yelled "Jesus!" He yelled "f*** you" as he passed. Well, I guess he told me. I try to forget this stuff as soon as possible, but I'm still remembering this one.
