Chapter the 9
(I just have to tell you one last thing. When I got off the bike, as we were preparing for our historic trip to New New New London, I was so excited that I wasn't looking where I was going. You'd be surprised how many people have dogs in the future, and how little the owners seem to care about cleaning up. Of course, I stepped in a big, fresh pile from a little dog with a big digestive system. I looked at the 18 biking suits and said to them "Watch your step, there's poo everywhere."
They became silent. They were suddenly all looking at me with big sad eyes. Some started to cry. Several of them pulled out their recently acquired paper and pencils to write it down. Individually, they approached me, and hugged me. One said he had never been so touched by such an inspirational thought from a person. I looked across the street where a House of Pooh stood, and watched the display out front change to read "Watch your step, there's Pooh everywhere."
I was so proud. He would have been too.)
