Is there any drug store nearby where you could grab something like Coricidin? Sorry you are having such a day!!
There wasn't anything downtown, but I made it home, so I'm okay. Thanks!
Hope your day gets better.
Don't know if winter riding is your thing, but if you're thinking about it, I'd seriously look at some of the carbide studded tires on the market. They are amazing. They scoff at ice or packed snow. After taking a couple of fall winter before last, I picked some up last fall and was blown away.
I have Schwalbe's, but that's mostly because I ride a recumbent, and my front wheel is 20", and they were the only studded tire I could find in 20". I've also heard very good things about Nokians.
I'm not going to ride in the snow. I just don't want to take the risk.
A totally sensible approach.
Actually, that was my approach, though I started questioning after two falls that occurred when I thought the streets were clear. In one case, it started snowing after I was out, in the other, I was caught up in some tricky traffic, and manoeuvred into a path that led to a small ice patch left from a much earlier snow fall, with no time to brake safely (so instead I ended up rolling across a lane and a half of traffic - no injury, thanks to the martial arts background, but that wouldn't have saved me from being hit by a car).
And that's before I started looking at biking as a primary commuting option. Riding on ice still isn't my idea of a barrel of laughs, but I know I can do it safely, now.
I am trying to get more bike commuting, so I hope that the weather stays decent as long as possible!
Do you make fun of the pro se people with your fellow lawyers? :-D
No, we were all quiet and respectful, even though it took a long time.
It sounds really interesting. I will have to give it a read. Thanks!
Up here in Canada (land of magic and light), the docket goes in order of seniority of counsel. For almost everything, that means SRLs go last (I occasionally question the fairness of telling people to show up for 930 when they're only going to be called at 12).
Of course, the most annoying bit is when you wait for two hours, duck out to feed the meter, and discover the judge has started in on the SRLs in your five minute absence.
The docket here is done alphabetically, but I know that "sweating the meter" situation.
Then the solution is simple. Ferrett will still love you once you change your name to Aagini Aajudd.*
*Of course, it's probably by client name. ;)
I dunno; sometimes I'm glad of the extra few minutes to get to court, when the traffic is bad.
On the plus side, being toward the bottom of the calendar gives you extra time for your swelling to go down. Or get worse, depending on fate ha ha.
It did, a bit. I didn't look quite so punched-in-the-face.
Any comments from the bench? Just curious.
No, it isn't the nature of this judge to comment on such things.
Just as well. It's tricky to make such discussions not be super-awkward.
