The Slice

Pep talk

I have a bus driver friend whose current afternoon STA route overlaps part of my bike ride home.

Sometimes, when he overtakes me slowly going up a hill, he opens the bus doors and asks, “Need a ride?”

Yesterday afternoon, I was on my way home and heard a bus coming up from behind.

When my friend opened the doors and smiled, I asked him how he always managed to encounter me when I was going my slowest. I suggested it was if he is my personal trainer or something.

He said he liked that idea. Then his face grew serious and he said “Let's pick up the pace a little.”
