Typical ride home…

12.18.07 | 1 Comment

Since Justin and I both live in San Francisco, work in Sausalito and both ride our own Vespa, some nights conversations go something like this…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

First stop light on Lombard St after crossing the Golden Gate bridge:
— Hey!
Hey.
— How’s it goin’? (Light turns green)

Second stop light:
Pretty good, you? (Light turns green)
— (Nod)

Third stop light:
— Good… I’m hungry! Are you hungry?
Nah, not so much (Light turns green)

Fourth stop light:
— I’m reeeaallly hungry! Wanna stop at Trader Joe’s or something?
Uh, I don’t know.
— Yeah I guess we don’t really have bags.
Yeah, I don’t know… I mean we can…. (Light turns green)

Fifth stop light:
— Nah we don’t have to. We can just make some of that Indian lentil stuff we have at home.
Yeah… (Light turns green)

Sixth stop light:
Yeah, I was sorta thinking salad would be good.
— Oh, we can do salad. We can stop at Trader Joe’s and get salad. (Light turns green)

Sixth stop light:
Well, I was thinking Cala*. To just get a bag of lettuce with… (Light turns green)

Seventh stop light:
— With what?
What?
— Bag of lettuce with what?
Oh, with ham and almonds with a little balsamic vinaigrette. (Light turns green)

Eighth stop light:
— Ooo that sounds great! Maybe we should pick up some bread too. (Light turns green)

Ninth stop light:
Sho, that’s cool.
— So, should we make a left on Clay and a right on Hyde? Oh wait, we can just do a left on Bush and up Larkin and a right on California… Yeah, that’s probably too complicated.
How about we just park the Vespa home and walk to Cala*? (Light turns green)
— (Big nods)

Tenth stop light:
— Ha, yes! Much better plan.
Okie. (Light turns green and we ride home)

* Crappier grocery store but much closer to where we live.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As you can tell, the only way for us to exchange more than 2 sentences is to be stuck at a stop light. Conversations are very chopped up and sometimes hard to follow, but we somehow manage to make some decisions! And so tonight, we had a lovely, flavor packed salad.

Thank you Red Lights, we couldn’t have done it without you!
