On Duval, there's a section where there are guard rails on both sides of the street. Apparently, this is an area where people occasionally speed and go off the road, so the city's put these in place to avoid greater damage. However, the guard rails are held up by small steel girders that have sharp edges, and there's not a lot of room to get past them on the sidewalk. Halfway through, I heard a tearing sound, and found my nice cargo shorts that I'd gotten a few weeks ago had an extra hole, one running almost the entire length of the fabric.
Chagrined, I walked the last mile home with one hand clutching my water bottle and the other hand holding the fabric together, avoiding unexpected exposure of my boxer shorts to the Saturday afternoon driving community. Upon inspection, they're ruined. I think I need to invest in some tear-resistant shorts before my next expedition into this particular area of town.
