Today I met with some friends at the Cupertino Panera Bread to hang out and catch up. Because it’s “close” to where I live (I’m very much like Steven Wright in this respect, EVERYTHING is within walking distance if you have the time) I suggested to my buddy Carol that we walk there. It’s 3.5 miles from the house according to Google maps — not a bad walk. We left at 8:15 and made it there by 9:15, earlier than we needed to be for meeting the others. Then, she was actually game to walk back. She wasn’t sure about it. She was worried that she was “slowing me down”. However, one hour and another 3.5 miles and we were home.
I think I enjoyed the walk more than the brunch (strangely, I ate salad). I’m proposing that the next time we meet at Rancho San Antonio and go for a hike. We can always go somewhere afterwards for a quick bite. However, being active is a nice way to hang out and catch up. Plus, it might just undo some of the damage caused by “breakfast.” LOL!
