Nice Young Man

Yesterday I was just past the halfway point of a 5 mile run when all of a sudden some young dude in his twenties blows by me on my right shoulder.  I didn't even know he was back there, and he passed me like I was walking.  So I said with a grin, "Hey, way to make me look bad!"

He turned back and said, "I'm just going a short distance today."

Sure.  Short distance for him was probably, you know, 5 miles!

But as he rapidly became a speck in the distance, I thought to myself, "What a nice young man, trying to make the old fart feel better."

Then I labored home and iced my knee.
