Surreal City

So just after my last post, I headed out for my first run since getting my orthotics. It went quite well, overall; I ran two miles of the 2.5 mile course I took, and my left foot (the one with the bad arch) was just ecstatic the whole time. (The right foot remains a little uncertain about this whole plastic-in-the-shoe thing, but I think it’s adjusting.)

But as I was trekking up one of the main residential boulevards in town, a smallish one of these crossed my path, about twenty yards ahead. It seemed a little more at home in the neighborhood than I’d have liked, quite frankly, cruising happily down the center of the road.

  1. Yeah, I saw one of them kye-yotes when I was out your way in 2003.

  2. Dr Wirtz used to have like information sessions with local residents trying to educate them on the truth about coyotes, since everytime someone had a cat go missing theyd freak out and go kill a bunch of coyotes. For the large part they hunt SMALL mammals, like pesky mice and gophers. Yeah theyll occassionally attack a small cat if theyre desperate, but frankly its the homeowners fault for letting their pets run around free at night. And its not like cats have a detrimental affect on the local native bird population. Nooo, none at all.
