    it was 85 degrees yesterday so i went for a hike 

    i really wanted to do a spring cleaning of my drawers and cupboards but it was 85 degrees and they say its gonna be 64 degrees starting wednesday. and its gonna rain.

    so i hiked. i didnt wanna. but id been sick and i was still a little sick. sick enough i needed to bring some kleenex. plus nature never agrees with my sensitive nose.

    and i dont know if i was raised right or what, but when im with a lady all i focus in on is her. sometimes a hot woman will walk past when im on a date or with a friend and she will be talking and all of a sudden she will stop talking and say “i will just let you soak that in.”

    and i will say soak what in. and they will say that ridiculous fashion model who just strolled by. and i will say something like, the only woman in this room is you. and they’ll say oh please, save it.

    but its true. its good to have tunnel vision.

    i bring this up because usually when i hike runyun canyon im with karisa and shes beautiful as we all know and typically shes fun to be with. a tad less fun when hiking cuz she makes me mountain climb and do push ups and eat weird honey concoctions and she frowns at my lack of stamina and etc.

    but i always like to be with her and its easy to block out all the other distractions around our periphery. but america, yesterday i was shocked, shocked i tell you at all the fine young women crawling around that mountain.

    i hiked alone and mama mia on a hickory stick. i felt like i was at the playboy mansion as they were holding auditions. every type of woman in every type of skin tight outfit was out there with their water bottles and headphones and ponytails and spandex and like a dream every corner brought out a new one.

    it was almost as if Someone Above was all, psssst if you come here more often this is what i will reward your eyes with.

    i hiked around places id never been to before and at every bend i was treated to a new view. on the left was the hollywood sign and behind it in the distance a snow covered mountain range. and to the right all the buildings of westwood and behind that the shining ocean. twas awe inspiring.

    i sweated, i listened to howard in my ear buds, i worked off that days fast food, and when i got home i took the longest shower. and thanked Jah for all that nature he blessed LA with.
