Guy On A Bike: Homie Fall Fest 2014

On any other Saturday, the Sunrise Inn only has a handful of salty regulars from the neighborhood, sipping coffee or 3.2 beers while swapping stories.

A Moment

So today I had a moment. I was walking into the gym (late for yoga) and I bump into my husband’s mistress. Awkward. She stops in front of me, I stop, we are the only two people in the parking lot.
