On cardio days, I try to find a machine looking out to the street. My gym is on the second floor of the building, and it’s a nice view of the happenings below. There is often construction, and I channel my inner toddler and mindlessly watch the vehicles and their operators work.
This morning was particularly exciting. I saw a man get lifted in a cherry picker to change the bulbs on a street light four stories tall. In the rain.
The highlight of the day, however, was a bike. Some of the bikes here have wheelbarrow type containers built between the handlebars and the front wheel. Today I saw one with a 50+ pound brown labradoodle in one. It was hilarious.
