Who realized? Looking at a Tour de France mountain stage is a journey of community, of freebies, of nonsense, of joyous merriment

Do you know that pleasure you get, that unfettered delight, when you walk into a Tesco Specific at evening, drained and weary and starving from a working day of no food items, and uncover the whoopsie aisle featuring a sandwich, a pie, a wrap, a food offer at 80 percent of its initial cost?

The feeling of securing a cut price, as if someway you deserved it, you gained it. It’s a wonderful emotion of pure contentment. Anything so uncomplicated, so minimal, so unimportant, still simultaneously so critical.
