After signing on for her second year at a public school, Alex moved across town near Uamsan Mountain and Cheongju University, where we had gone on our predawn New Year’s hike, four months ago. We didn’t know at the time that she’d be relocating over twenty minutes and a ten dollar cab ride away so soon (it’s been four months?). With Alex teaching normal hours at her fancy public school and the rest of us still working in the evenings at our private schools, we don’t get to see each other much. So this weekend Alex and Alicia and I got together to turn the unused space on her roof into a rooftop garden, giving us a place and project to work on together.
But before planting, my pal Sam was in the neighborhood and called to show me the motorbike he just bought (that’s British English for scooter, he’s from Skegness) and took me for a loop around the mountain and the lake.
Back to business; breaking ground.
Alex may have better yoga posture, but I still hit more imaginary doubles than her.
