And get this... I just happen to work there.
So he walks up to the counter, purchases an item for his tri-bike, and asks if I'm Chris. A bit surprised, I say yes. He them goes on to mention that he read my blog and knows about my crash from last year. I was kind of freaked out, thinking that out of the millions of people in Los Angeles, someone who read this freakin' thing would walk into the place I work at (I started Monday!) and ask if I'm the guy.
Anyway, I figure if someone out there who isn't a close personal friend or family member is reading this, then I may as well dust it off and try again. After all, third time's the charm, right?
