This morning made me grateful that I carry my lock with me.
I slept thru my alarm, and woke up late.
This is not why I am grateful, but it contributed to today's reason.
I wasn't so late that I had to forgo my ride and "gasp" drive to work, but I didn't have time to eat a healthy, nutritious breakfast and make a lunch. My daily commute takes me past a particular bagel shop that has the best bagels in the greater Salt Lake area, if not all of Utah. (They also have bialys, which are just awesome!). I would go on about the bagels, but this is bike-junkie, not bagel-junkie.
So, my commute takes me past The Bagel Project, and they just so happen to open at 6:30, not too long before I usually go past that intersection. I haven't stopped before, this morning, I decided to.
If I wouldn't have had my lock with me, I wouldn't have stopped. The downside of carrying your lock is the added weight. The benefits are you can make impromptu stops.
I said that I was done talking about the bagels? Well, I was wrong. Their bagels are amazing, and even more so hot out of the oven! Sometimes oversleeping has its benefits!
