So There I Was . . .

. . . smoking a cigarette in between tacos and beer at a south loop bar. To the left was a storefront window into the Xtreme Sport Fitness Center where New Year's resolutions were being honored. To the right, another window. This one displaying rows of people in sweats jumping ropes and stretching before their boxing fitness class began.

I went back inside and ordered another round.

The car battery was still charging and it would be at least an hour before I could go test it and see if I could drive home.

Otherwise, it would be the train and the hope that my car isn't ticketed or worse for being left overnight in the garage.
