Total Distance

I saw the same three ladies that I saw yesterday.   They weren't as giggly today.  Then I saw the couple that was running last week.  I'm starting to get regulars.  Then I saw this guy that was getting ready to fish in the RWCD Canal.  I said, "Hey friend.  You're not supposed to fish in this canal."  He said something that I did not understand as I was running, so I stopped turned around, puffed my chest out and said, "What did you say?"  Just kidding.  I just asked him to repeat himself.  He said that he spoke with the zanjeros and they told him he could fish as much as he'd like.  I asked him if he spoke with the SRP zanjeros or the RWCD zanjeros.  He said SRP.  I told him this isn't an SRP canal.  This is RWCD and they stock their own fish in the canal.  I told him there was a sign on the fence and as I ran off I said, "Just saying.  If they catch you out here, they'll run you off."  I felt real bad because he looked like a sweet old man.  Then I felt even worse because I didn't tell him that the SRP canal was 2 miles down the road.  Then I felt triple bad because it dawned at me that it's highly likely that he was Santa Claus and I didn't recognize him out of costume.  I guess I won't be getting and presents this year.

Well, you might get coal. That counts as a present, really.

You're right. If I apply enough pressure, I just might get a diamond.
