Jumping off the Bridge
You should have been there! Greenjeans and I were jumping off the bridge on the west side of Lake of the Isles. It was probably ninety degrees and the water felt so good! After about a dozen jumps we saw the PARK POLICE car coming around the lake and one of the cops said don’t jump, but it was too late. We were already in the air. When we came back up, the cop asked me if I heard him and told me not to jump off the bridge again. I went to get my stuff, but it was gone so I asked the PARK POLICE if they saw a pair of tennis shoes and a t-shirt when they pulled up. They said my stuff was lost property and I would have to come over to the station to claim it. Do you believe that? I had my wallet on me so I said, screw it and walked home shirtless and barefoot. Greenjeans had his shoes in the bushes so they didn’t get his. I was a little late for work, but when I came in through the back door Greenjeans was just grinning all over the place. He pointed out to the dining room and there were the PARK POLICE that stole my shoes settling into a booth and looking over the menu. They must have been on a break. They still had their uniforms on. Well, Greenjeans and I made them a very special pizza. I mean it was sick. I can’t believe I did that to somebody’s food, but how could I not? After they had snarfed most of it down we went out to the dining area and I said, “Hey Guys! Remember me?”. you should have seen the look on their faces! I asked them if I could still get my shoes back when I got off work at eleven and Greenjeans asked them if they needed a box, but they said we could just keep the rest of pizza. Such fun! Wish you were here. You would have laughed. Call me if you get a chance!
