What I did on Friday/Saturday

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 17 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

I’m just going to start off by saying that this was perhaps the single awesomest day…well, in a rather long time. It all started around 6am, as most weekdays do, with me rolling out of bed. I was into work by 7. Finished up a large chunk of programming, thus completing the main part of my program, and left just after 3pm.

Funny thing about getting into work at 7am: the weather isn’t hot, yet. It was one of those days where I hadn’t been outside since I arrive at work. And when I returned to the door from whence I had entered. Pow. A sheet of heat punched me in the face. A thought crossed my mind, “Perhaps I should just go back in and work another 8 hours in the air conditioned office?”

Had it been any other day, I might have. But it was Friday and I was done. So I wandered over to the car and drove home, AC blasting all the way.

Once I was home, I changed out of my casual work clothes and into my “normal” clothes. This really just involved changing my shirt and taking my badge off.

I called Peter. He was working up on Phinny Ridge installing some rails on his bosses box truck. Having nothing better to do, I headed over to lend a hand. I really wanted to ride up and down on the tailgate lift.

Unfortunately, Peter didn’t have the key to truck and so there was no tailgate riding involved. Just working in a rather hot van on a day that probably broke the record.
