A perfect day:
- Getting out of a meeting 2 hours earlier than planned
- Picking up my sweet new Schwinn Collegiate (an August 1969 model) from the bike shop and going for the first ride. Telling anyone who will listen the story of how I found it abandonned behind my parents’ garage, as though it had been transported directly from my months-long visions of a perfect bike into my physical reality.
- Dinner and drinks with a friend where laughter was served with the appetizer, main course, and dessert. Having a friend actually take me up on the suggestion that she show me a sweet driving move, like whipping a doughnut in the parking lot.
Opening the Isthmus to the business section and seeing the cover of my book, my photo and a wonderfully written article about my business. Sharing a two-page spread with Don Wickstrum, Paul Moss, and Gail Ambrosius. The latter serves up little nuggets of heaven at such a bargain.
- The wherewithal to enjoy ever minute it.
