Og reminds us It's never too hot to enjoy the view.
Finished my day at the gas station, filling up across the pump from another heat-annoyed Explorer owner. Next pump in the line, a woman pulls up on a Vespa wearing a Herve Leger A-line dress. There has been some rain but not enough to do more than dampen the pavement, and there’s a strong wind. She has on a half helmet and as she lifts the seat to fill the fuel tank she drops her keys. “The day is about to get a whole lot better” I say to my companion at the opposite pump. “And hotter” he responds. She bends to pick up the keys, evidently oblivious to the fact that her skirt has blown up around her waist for a moment of time too small to be measured, but which seems like about an hour.Reminded me of a similar "The View from My Windshield" moment when a very nicely shaped college girl on her way to UCSD was riding along Gennesee Avenue on her scooter. She was completely unaware of the view from directly behind. All I could think of at the time was this prayer. Thank You GOD for blessing me much more than I deserve and Please make the light at Govenor Drive Green.
We stare in silence.
