|I'm supposed to go down Adanac & take a left to Science
World. I miss the left entirely & end up in Chinatown.
||While I'm dragging my bike through many flights of stairs
at GM Place I can see Science World in the distance.
I ride around downtown recognizing an occasional
corner. I get a McChicken in a wrap & sit on the Art Gallery steps
to eat it. Then I find tabacco but no papers.
I asked 3 people if I could bum a cigarette. They
all said "no, I only have 3 left. This is not my neighbourhood. I saw a
man with his hat glued to his hand.
After riding for awhile I saw water & thought:
"Yay! English Bay!" (where the bike path was supposed to lead)
...but it wasn't. So I rode all the way uphill to the
Burrard Street Bridge...
...& across it. Along the sidewalk everwhere
were these signs:
& all the bike riders & skateboarders heading
towards me were yelling at me.
I knew the area on the other side of the bridge.
I used to sunbathe for an hour everyday during my 15 minute break.
My contacts had been bugging me so I decided to switch
eyes, not realizing that it was breezy at the beach.
So I tried to put them in in the rest room.
