I often internally bemoan the fact that, spending lots of time at home, I don't have access to the great parade of humanity that I used to see when commuting in the New York metro area. While, in a strictly statistical sense, this is true, I think I may have perhaps been underutilizing the natural resource that, after all, our dearly departed Jesse Helms suggested would suffice as the North Carolina Zoo: the people of Chapel Hill.
And so, a sketch, perhaps the first of many.
Guy on a scooter
There is a pretty new guy in the nabe who rides a little scooter. Not a Vespa, mind you, nothing that fashionable. Some old thing like you might have seen in the 70s-80s with essentially no body, just a frame. Something like the one below, only with a seat.
I have seen him ride it as far as Whole Foods, which is not far at all, so hopefully this is not his primary mode of transport. I gotta talk to this guy and get a bit of his story.
