For Melissa

It was suggested I draw a diagram of my incident the other day, but I thought I'd rather animate it..

I almost got in a fight on my run this morning. I was doing 5 miles with 3 at pace.

(Brad Pitt will be playing the part of Me..)





My pace started at a mile marker right before you cross a road in a townhouse development. As I was approaching the street a cheesy Monte Carlo painted like a wannabe Nascar was coming to a rolling stop. I had a full head of steam, so I kept going. (and as a side note I have 25 runs this year on the same trail and about 22 of them crossed that street and I've never once stopped.)




When I was about 10 yards past the road I hear "HEY ASSHOLE! HOW ABOUT STOPPING?" I turn and Monte had rolled down his window and was yelling at me.


(Corey Feldman circa 1989 will be playing the part of Monte)



I yelled back "You're the one with the stop sign!", He yelled back "Yeah, and I stopped, you didn't!"




I yelled "That's because I don't have a stop sign, you have to stop for me ASSHOLE!"



Then I ran like the wind. Scared at every crossroad for the rest of my run that he would be waiting for me to kick my ass.

Whoever was in charge of wardrobe for this film is just sheer genius.

Too funny man! This is one of Brad's best performances yet! Too bad the budget didn't have room to hire Angelina too.

That picture of you saying, "You're the one with the stop sign!!" looks a little bit like you're sniffing your armpit. Is that because you're so manly when you run that you exude testosterone and other phermones? Thank you so much for the visual summary of these events. It makes it all so clear.

Now that's one great post! I don't know why you/BP had to wear a shiny dress and boots to yell at Nascar douche/Feldman, but that's like wondering why the sky is blue. Some things just ARE.

i love the pictures. it really adds to the dramatics of the story.

okay, that guy sucks. i've been run over/ hit hard in the side by cars for not stopping for them even though i was already in the road and they sped up to try to keep me from crossing.
it's been a cab every time, too. :(
