Jan 25, 2018
It was a cold and snowy day, and I was out of time. I'd overslept, and today was an important day. Usually, my protocol on Saturday mornings is to pull the covers over my head, keep my door locked, put on some soft music, or a good book, and shun all human contact for as long as possible. Today though was a day I needed to face the world. Today was the day some really amazing poets were coming to my city, and I wouldn't miss it for anything. One problem, I've got no idea how to get to where they're going to be reading their stuff, and I've overslept, so I don't have time to do my usual routine of getting lost for hours on end. More importantly, I don't have the energy to do that. Ordinarily when this happens, I'd take a Lyft, or an Uber, but I just had to buy some expensive textbooks, so that's not an option this month. Luckily, I just got a new tool that cuts my travel time in half, Aira.
