Day 94

Now that the weather is getting nicer, I've started seeing more joggers and cyclists in the park. A lot of these people seem to enjoy running or riding their bicycles in large groups. The runners are nice enough, but the cyclists can get pretty aggressive. One of these days the dogs and I are going to get mowed down by a pack of these type-a maniacs. I don't think these groups are pushing themselves to the limit however, because I often hear them talking to each other as they pass us on the trail. Groups of women talk about their children, their marriage or their divorce. The men just talk about their bicycles.

I don't talk much at all anymore. I used to be on the phone with clients all the time, but now everyone seems to prefer e-mail. Talking still seems so much easier than typing to me, but I dutifully answer my e-mail messages anyway. I still don't understand the fascination with e-mail and text messages. I never understood people's fascination with jogging and bicycles either, so maybe I'm missing something.

To me it makes more sense to get your exercise by doing necessary evils like mowing the grass and vacuuming. And I definitely prefer chatting over a cup of coffee to texting and e-mail. Why do people hire a maid to clean their house and then go join a gym to get the exercise they need? Walking two Dalmatians four to five miles every day provides plenty of exercise, but I've never thought of it as fun. It's more of a necessity. It's been my experience that if you don't give an active dog a long walk every day, they'll find some other outlet for their chewing up your furniture.
