|Sogwoozles invade Soleri Bridge and Plaza|
And so it begins: the sogwoozle invasion. First they appeared in ones and twos, harmless enough, then, suddenly: a sogwoozle formation! Striking at the heart of the city! Posing in front of Soleri siltcast panels! Powering down the non-powered paths! Not even bothering to deploy parasols to try to disguise themselves!
I spotted the scouts in this area before. Too late now, I guess. They do bring up the "powered transport on the non-powered paths" question, but I would rather just refer to them as "sogwoozles," and glory in their sheer geeky awesomeness. Pedestrian path users, you're on your own, deal with the sogwoozles motoring down your non-motored paths as you see fit. On my bike I just blast on by making my RED ALERT SOGWOOZLE claxon sound.
I do have a concern that the sogwoozles might startle one of my equestrian horsey path user four-legged friends, causing animal upset with their alien locomotion. I love the horses beyond all reason. I'm hoping those sogwoozles do the right thing and come to a complete stop to allow the horses to pass. We could stand together, discussing our various modes of gyroscopic balance stabilization to pass the time. I would ask, gesturing toward the canal: them things run under water?
