One of the things I like about Minneapolis is the Skyway. Why? Mostly because I don’t like to go outside. Plus, you don’t have to stop for traffic. Granted, today when I was starving to death and searching for food, I felt like a main character in a zombie movie. You know the zombies who move fast like a tidal wave of undead? Everywhere I went there were PEOPLE! Herds of them everywhere! I was constantly in someone’s way. It took all of my willpower not to “accidentally” punch everyone.
It’s possible that I’m PMSing, but odds are it’s just a reaction to high stress and low blood sugar.
Note to self: Stay out of the Skyway between 12:00 Noon and 1:00 PM unless it’s an emergency or you want to face your crowd phobia and possibly start randomly punching strangers.
The crazy thing is that 45 minutes earlier and later, the 2nd story pathways are practically empty. Thank goodness my job is flexible and I can go get lunch whenever. What really sucks is when I get busy and can’t get away to one of the five places I get lunch. I’m trying to expand my horizons, but I feel like I’ve found most of the decent eateries. Plus it seems like everything is laden with tomatoes, which are my digestive nemesis.
Then again, it’s possible that the people volume could get worse in the winter. I mean today was a pretty yucky day weather-wise, so people were scrambling for air conditioning. It was like a sau-na out there. And I don’t care what anyone says. 87 degrees and 63% humidity is just as shitty as 105 and 5% humidity. Dry heat, wet heat, it’s all crappy because I hate sweating.
It is however that time of year when school starts and everyone decides to look busy. I mean there aren’t any schools in downtown Minneapolis, but of course that doesn’t stop people from changing their routines.
Seriously, if it wasn’t for people, I’d probably be in a better mood.
