  • I walked to the bulk store at lunchtime for some macadamia nuts. They're really expensive right now, but I love them, and they're supposed to be good for you.

    I stopped at a red light, and shuffled my feet on the textured plastic insert they'd put in the sidewalk when they re-did the street this summer.

    It looks like giant LEGO to me. I pretended I was standing on a red LEGO block, and then the light turned green.
