Life on the beltway

This morning I was driving to work on the beltway. The traffic on my side (the outer loop) was so slow that I got to watch a dog running loose on the inner loop and someone on foot chasing him. Weird but I figured maybe the guy lived fairly close to the beltway and somehow his dog got onto it and he was trying to get it before it got run over. Then I drove maybe 500 feet more and I saw another guy running toward his truck which was parked on the side of the road. So now I picture the two guys and dog in the cab of truck. For some reason they pull over and dog gets out and starts running.

This should screw up traffic for a while. On the other hand I saw a police car with lights running headed toward the holdup so hopefully traffic was restored at some point.

Stories like this make me *so* glad that I commute by subway...

I hope the dog was all right.

I didn't even post about the night about six months ago when I saw a motorcycle rider (on one of those Japanese looking bikes) who was doing tricks at full speed on the beltway. He was standing on one peg and had the other leg out like he was doing an ice skating camel position.

BTW, any readings coming up? I have lace and will travel. Currently working in silver. ;)

Years ago, when there was a large parking lot outside the Ballston Commons Hecht's store, I walked home through a downpour and watched a man sail-gliding across the parking lot...

I don't have any public readings scheduled right now. I'll be doing an event at the Special Libraries Association annual meeting in Baltimore, in June, and I'll be signing Advance Readers Copies of GIRL'S GUIDE at Book Expo America in May.

Come October, though, I'll be doing readings from GUIDE. I'll post about them on my website and blog! (And the silver lace sounds lovely!)
