Today on my bike commute to work, I passed three HPD officers on horseback before stopping at an intersection. While waiting for the light to change I became completely mesmerized by a window washer high up on the side of the Marriott, tethered by nothing but bungees and plungers. He looked like an insect up there, systematically wiping and climbing. Higher and higher.

I imagined people inside the room, thirty floors up, enjoying a cup of coffee, opening up their curtains and then being startled by the sight. How many things do you think that window washer sees on the job? How often do people see him? How long does it take him to do this? Would you do a few floors a day?

I completely lost myself in thought watching this guy while the light turned green and the mounted cavalry passed me, then snapped out of it when one of the officers looked down at me and said, "pretty high, huh?" If I actually had been stoned that would have scared the shit out of me.


Where do you live?

Maybe he was talking about the window washers.

Are you going to drink while you drive to the store? Or on the way back?
