“Tired, tired with nothing, tired with everything, tired with the world’s weight he had never chosen to bear.”
I was on a routine trip to the grocery store on my commuter/cargo bike with the grocery panniers installed. I had “watermelon” on my list, but there were only two left in the big cardboard bin and they were both really big. Would one fit in my pannier? Could it take the weight?
I figured I could walk home lugging the watermelon if I had to. But it fit and it barely took the weight.
It was a slow ride home.
