Of course, I missed my turn and it was longer than I had planned, but that's okay. I picked up _Railroaded_ while I was there. It's got really favorable professional reviews, but the Amazon customer reviews are not the sort to inspire confidence. If it's good, I'll buy the kindle edition (the hardcover is heavy enough to border on unwieldy). If it's bad, I can give up and return it.
R. took a break from working on taxes to meet me at Not Your Average Joe's for lunch. Afterwards, I looked at my bike and thought, hmmm. I'm on the Bianchi, which means I have two rear panniers. And Roche Bros is _right over there_. And I've taken to maintaining the grocery list in Evernote (after that debacle with T. erasing all my notes in the Apple Notes application, which has the added attribute of Not Backing Itself Up Anywhere, which is one of those brain-os that defies belief), so I had it with me. Returned library book and got another, check. Lunch with husband, check. Grocery shopping done, check.
R. and I spent part of our lunch discussing pedestrian pathways (our experience as kids, the ones in town that we know about, pedestrian-only roads in Seattle like the long stairs on Cap Hill, etc.) and what might be involved in using those to "retrofit" dentritic suburban subdivisions, instead of paved, wide roads suitable for emergency vehicles and cars.
