I accidentally* walked eight and a half miles today. I’m completely wiped out.

However, the errands are all done and all the Strongbox Chronicles are in the mail to their new owners. The poor man at the post office was a bit boggled when we kept taking more and more envelopes out of the bags. :)

And…I was gonna maybe go to a movie tonight, but I’ve already walked all over hell and breakfast, so I think I’ll stay home and watch Hunt for Red October.

The Road Home: miles to Isengard: 134.9

*One accidentally walks 8.5 miles by not WANTING to swim this morning, sulk, so going for a little walk instead, and then by having an appointment run late so the efficient appointment-to-post-office plan is shot, requiring one to walk into town twice instead of once, plus still running the other errands to the other side of town.

What? Doesn’t this happen to other people?

Considering that it's more than 8.5 miles one way from my house into town, no, that never happens to me. :P

The marquis and I once walked across much of Paris by accident. And then there was the time we walked round the side of two wrong mountains by mistake. We are very prone to it, indeed.

Either we should vacation together, or never meet. It's a toss-up. :)

That sort of thing used to happen to me all the time, when I lived in a town larger than my thumbnail.

It's beautiful here, but you can only accidentally walk about 3 miles, max.
