If she sees you all the time, she must know you dont have a suicide bomb in there. Or at least that you are not using it. I would have just told her you were training for a mile race, and see how hard she laughed.
yeah, I don't know why I didn't say what I was training for . . . I was so sure she was suspicious of the backpack . . . when I'm jogging through my home hood, I've had middle-aged moms headed to work in their cars, make a U-turn and do a slow drive by obviously checking me out . . . I wave, they acknowledge, and all is good. I guess it's unusual to see a middle aged man jogging with a backpack. now imagine if I were black or middle easter, haha, they'd have the cops called out in no time. I'd be on the sidewalk cuffed and frisked.
Women make u-turns to check you out? wow, you have got it made!
Yeah, just today I thought what if I dressed like a middle-easter for my jog through the park. Would I get stopped by the police, maybe attacked, or maybe nothing would happen...after all we are pretty diverse here in the Lou.
