Weird Thoughts From My Commute

This morning I passed a construction site (another frickin' strip mall, just what we need...) and noticed three manlifts driving in a line. Almost seemed like a formation, to be honest.

I wondered: When two manlifts pass each other, do the operators wave? Do operators of American-made manlifts snub those operating machines made in other countries?

Furthermore, do they have arguments and rants about what makes a REAL manlift?

Well, you got a belly laugh out of me. I just don't think that way when I am riding.

I hope that strip mall has a Chipotle.

Chipotle is what will make America great again.

Do you suppose they were Shriners in manlifts rather than tiny motorcycles? Perhaps they were working up a routine for the next parade.

Maybe they meet on job sites and argue over who has the most "farkles".

I was on a manlift today, but nobody wave at me.

Have fun,

Keen eye you have Lucky. You've stumbled on a human need most are not aware of. From far back in a pre-history people have been comforted by the knowledge that their beasts of burden have not only been domesticated but also mastered. While we laugh now we once were delighted with awe at the site of a line of camels or elephants on their way to work.

It's the same with pizza. The overt joy is in the eating but the sublime is the genetically imprinted reaction to the value of the wheel.

Just don't eat square pizza.
