Double Crossing the Mighty Columbia?
Dear Sir or Madam,
By the time you read this, I'll be on a bridge, looking over the edge.
Okay... maybe not exactly looking over. Would you believe looking at the edge from a fairly safe distance?
I'm an English major. We're all about the prepositions. (Sadly, not about the propositions. That's the Wildlife majors' department, damn them.)
Though, of course, when you read this I might still be on the bridge getting ferried across it before walking back, which doesn't really make any sense unless you're a) a crazed fitness fanatic who likes to enter walks and races as motivation or b) you simply like walking across bridges (not a group I fall into, I confess).
What, me? On a tangent?
I'm off doing the Great Columbia Bridge Crossing. Details later. And, of course, the gold star. I have a feeling I'll have earned it.
Done! Definitely earned that star.
