tuesday’s urban challenge

i needed to run some errands this afternoon. so i decided to… RUN some errands! i had four stops to make: library, post office, atm, and grocery store. about 5 miles to cover. the challenge: get everything done in less than 75 minutes. i figured roughly 50 minutes of running and a maximum of 25 minutes waiting in line, etc…

i left home at 3:03. ran to the library, checked out a book, ran to the post office, mailed a package, did my longest leg to the atm, deposited a check, and finally went shopping for orange sherbet. (very necessary). the gods of waiting in line rained fortune on my world, because it was exactly 4:18 when i stepped inside the apartment. that was a sweet way to get things done. thank god for backpacks and orange sherbet!
