Always Have A Plan B

Adolf and The Cook went into town today by train. $1.20 each way for a 42km journey of 55 minutes.

We walked from Adelaide station to the little specialist sports shoes shop and bought a pair each of special walking shoes. The Cook has decided to start walking and Adolf's shoes were buggered, having done about 2,000 km over the last year or so. From there it was a short walk to the Adelaide Markets for lunch and a wander around before drifting back to catch the return train.

A couple of stations out from Adelaide an old joker got on with a mountain bike and stood next to where we were seated. Adolf noticed he had a couple of wooden walking sticks tied to the frame of his bike. Didn't think much of it until The Cook giggled and dug me in the ribs.

"Giggle giggle - what's that silly old bugger got walking sticks on a bike for? giggle giggle"

Quick as a flash, Adolf responded.

"In case the bike breaks down."

I suffer from sleep deprivation due largely to work stress. Reading that helped me no end.

Even if that hadn't been written in the 3rd person and it was actually someone else relaying the story it still would have been diabolically unfunny.

Get some new material Seinfeld.

Well, here we have another two sour pricks who'd be better commenting somewhere else.

Ignore them Adolf, I enjoyed your little tale, my 'chauffeur' took me to the most expensive eaterie in town for lunch today just for the hell of it, it's these little 'things' that can make a day.

Yes Medusa. I do ignore them.
