since i’ve been in redlands, i’ve been working from home and fighting off a nasty winter cold. it’s not super chilly here in southern california, but i guess my defenses were down in all of the holiday madness. i’ve been taking plenty of cold medicine to keep myself sane, though i fear that it’s been having the opposite effect! but this morning i was finally feeling a bit like myself again. and perhaps all of this staying indoors wearing sweatpants and slippers bundled up in front of the computer with a space heater at my feet got me in the mood to dress up in some office attire. when i pulled this look together, i commented that perhaps i looked a bit like someone’s dad arriving home after a day of work with his sleeves rolled up getting ready for a beer.
it was funny that i said such a thing because as we were snapping these photos my dad rolled up on his bike. he is decidedly not the office type. he rode right up to me and my brother complete with his made in the u.s.a new balances, an old man cardigan, and a box bungeed to the rack of his bike with some cookies in a gift bag as a birthday gift to my brother. yep, that’s my dad. his hobbies include collecting records, playing guitar, and flipping vintage bikes on craigslist. he’s a pretty cool dude.
