Tonight, a cab driver pulled up next to me to tell me how much he admired my bike. Apparently he is some sort of environmental scientist that drives cabs part time (I guess environmental scientists don't get paid that much, but you'd think they'd be rolling in the dough consulting on that whole BP oil spill thing....). Anyway, it was nice, in an unsolicited compliment sort of way.
Then the light turned green and he promptly pulled ahead of me, only to block the bike lane while he discharged his passenger.
Tonite was a pretty good summer night. Not too humid, not too hot, not too much traffic. I didn't go very far though. I had responsibilities at home (i.e. a very drunk boyfriend) to tend to.
