Rocky Roads


Oh man.
That title makes me think of ice cream.
Its been forever since I've had Rocky Road ice cream. Is that even a flavor anymore?

I hope so.

Pic is via camera phone from today's lunch ride. When I get mad at my boss or my job or the stupid microwave at work that burns my popcorn, I will have to come back here and look at that pic.

After a morning of process improvement meetings, I headed out at lunch to do some improvin of a more important kind. Mostly that of turning right on a switchback. Thats gotta be more important than flow charting accounts payable.

flow.

I can turn left real good, but I can't turn right. And there are 4 of those suckers on this little downhill trail I do at lunch. Since I had conquered all the little uphill rocky things last week, I was determined to conquer at least one of those righty tighty switchbacks.

And to my surprise I made all but one of them! I just had to commit without worrying about plonking over and falling on a rock. I committed, I flowed and I turned right.

Yay for me. Go with the flow.

can you believe i couldn't find ANY cookies and cream ice cream at safeway last night? NOT a SINGLE carton of it. COOKIES AND CREAM! Isn't that supposed to be like, a staple???

Oh, they did have it in Lite. But that doesn't count.

They had lots of Rocky Road. But I'm not a fan of the marshmallows...

I can't turn right either. It's sad. I wonder if it could be arranged that all switchbacks and berms from here on out will be made so I only have to turn left?

Is that the Santa Teresa trail? bump, bump, bump...
