I couldn't figure out why all these people were jogging my usual route on some random Tuesday morning. Sigh... I prefer my solitude though. Manny: Hang tight. In two weeks they'll all be back sucking down donuts and you'll be alone again. Eve: The small part of me not appalled by your cynicism hopes you're right.
