I can't believe I forgot to mention it to anybody...

It's not every day that you see a man riding on a Segway scooter in a back alley!
And I forgot to tell anybody!
It happened three days ago while I was getting gas at the Shell station at Portage and Olive, and the Segway man was coming from the stripmall on the next block. That means he was either doing some drycleaning, buying insurance, eating at Boston Pizza, or maybe picking up a prescription at Shoppers Drugmart. But my money is on either buying tetra-packs of wine at the liquor store, renting video games at Microplay, or looking at the puppies in the window of the pet store that will probably be closing down soon.
This was actually the first time I'd ever seen anyone using one in real life. I'd thought that maybe Ron Howard invented them as a prop for prime time sitcoms that are too good to not get cancelled:
