So the Dog Days of Summer arrived. I'm in a boot now, because of an achilles strain I incurred while running (the doctor said, "If the boot doesn't work, I'll refer you to the surgeon.") so I'm just sitting around getting fat.
I went in to the District once to have lunch with my past and hopefully future running buddy, since I'm currently incapacitated and haven't run in months. The Fourth of July arrived, and at noon I went to the Lost Dog Cafe for lunch.
Nobody I recognized came in. But how would I know what my children would look like anyway, since I have never laid eyes on any of them even once when they were of majority age.
After lunch with the empty chair, I strolled around outside while I called a sibling, and a friend. Then since I was hot, I purchased a refrigerated Snicker's Bar from the drugstore and while chewing on that semi-hard nougat mass, I pulled out a crown, one put in just two years ago.
