HBD to Me

How to celebrate pandemic birthday #2: Last year, when pandemic was new, I took the day off work and walked around Burbank. This felt scary and daring, and after six weeks at home, I relished the sight of every squirrel, every food truck. 

A year later, that wasn’t gonna do it, so I rented a car and drove up to Ojai (pronounced O.J. by Siri), at the foot of the Las Padres National Forest. 

I woke up in a cute hotel, of course I had to work a while, then picked up lunch and hiked up an old fire road. 

 I looked at my Fitbit. How do 4,000 steps feel longer on a hike than it would just going about my day? Fuzzy math.
