Overheard at Table 3: Barefoot Running on Acorns

Lucky Moran: Saw this post the other day on Facebook, and it's been bugging me for days and I didn't really know why until just now.

Otis Redwing: OK, shoot.

Lucky: This guy had posted a picture of a sidewalk full of fallen acorn seeds, and was telling people that he's a barefoot runner and that they should keep their sidewalks clear of acorns so that HE could run in his bare feet!

Otis: Everybody's got their pet thing these days.

Lucky: Well, it finally hit me why that's nuts!  One, because you can clean your sidewalk from acrons and it'll be littered again next day, and some of us work during the week and only get home in time enough to brush teeth and go to bed to start work again NEXT day, and also, what if some of these people are old folks?  Invalids?  People who can't get out of their houses?

Otis: Fair point.

Lucky: So I'm thinking, why doesn't this guy go running barefoot WITH A BROOM?!  That way, HE can clean the sidewalks while running and he's getting in a full exercise routine and doing a public service at the same time.

Otis: So why didn't you suggest it?

Lucky: The post was like, two weeks, ago, and I can't find it now.

Otis: Timing, Lucky.  It's always in the timing.
