Shoe (5/6/11)

May 6, 2011

Like many Americans, I own a car, and like many of those same Americans, I hate driving it. However, my dislike has nothing to do with gas prices and everything to do with traffic. On those rare days that I drive to work, I find myself sitting in a low-slung seat for 45 minutes, my foot constantly shifting between the accelerator and the brake, my hands tilting the steering wheel from side to side, and my eyes straining to see the road. My daily train ride, on the other hand, is a joy. I ride my bike to the train station, board, sit down, crack open a book, close my eyes, put my arm around my wife, and enjoy all the things those suckers on the highway don’t get to enjoy. The fact that I pay very little in train fare is just icing on the cake.
