Patrice....Main Street

Patrice patrols Columbia's Main Street on this fabulous yellow scooter contraption and not only does he cut quite the striking figure, but he's also the very picture of courtesy.

Ah, the enduring charm of the scooter. Many years ago, my dear friend Millicent arrived for lunch aboard a sea-foam green Vespa with matching helmet. She looked so darling, so much the part of the free-spirited sophisticate, that I forgot she was my dull old friend (apologies Milli!). For approximately 4.7 minutes, I was swooning with love. Lucky for us both, familiarity again bred contempt--and quickly; still, I have not forgotten the impact that a snappy, motorized accessory can make.
