I forgot to mention back when I was at the Golden Gate Bridge, I saw some bloke jogging some distance in front of me and something about him looked quite odd but I couldn't make it out. As he got closer I realised he only had one arm, I was impressed by this.
I was also impressed by this bloke's mechanical leg I witnessed on the Washington Metro yesterday on the way home, he had some U.S. Airforce 'Retired' apparel on so I guess he lost his leg in the Air Force or something. I'd never seen anything like this before, I thought back to working in a restaurant and how customers would complain very aggresively and abruptly to me about not getting any butter with their toast, or that their salad was slightly wilted, or maybe there's not enough gravy to please them. . . .there's one armed joggers out there and people with mechanical limbs who's lives are probably limited because of it, do they complain? no they don't. So to those annoying customers: Shut up and deal with your lack of butter and your wilted lettuce, until you can find something actually worth kicking up about; or speak to me about it in a more relaxed way. . .some people!
Anyway so last night after I was done using the internet, I was on my way to the Metro station when I came across a bar called the Sports Tavern, I sat down outside to have a Chicken Caesar Salad and a coke, it was dark, the weather was overcast but not raining, the atmosphere in the downtown area was still very lively. The salad was better than Hooter's and only about a dollar more expensive. I asked the waiter if they did deserts; they didn't so I wasn't happy. He told me about a Haaagen whatzit (the ice cream) store just up the road, so I went there to get a tub of cookie dough ice cream, and took it back to the bar to eat, I did ask if I could stay and eat it. A few of the employees who were on a break or finished for the day invited me over to have a chat and what not, they also thought I was from Texas due to the Stetson. When I was about to leave after I'd finished my ice cream, one of them was like 'So where are you from?', the others laughed as we'd been over all this when I first sat down with them. . .they were all a little drunk.
