The Slice

How many times have you done this?

I was walking over to Thai on 1st for a long-planned lunch with a friend.

A woman on a bike waved at me. Thoughtfully realizing I might not recognize her because of her helmet and sunglasses, she said “Hi, Paul — it's Suzi Hokonson.”

I have known her more than 20 years. She was very encouraging when I first started riding a bike to work in 2008.

So naturally, I waved back and shouted “Hi, Cindy!”
