This evening I did a strange thing. Well, there are thousands who are doing it all the time. I'm sure my readers do it regularly, at least some of them. I suppose more than a million people in the world are doing it this very instant. But ... you know my "situation", and that I haven't done it in a long time.
But I'm still excited. It was so much fun. Now I understand why people literally get addicted to it. It was fabulous. But now my butt really hurts, but they told me it happens a lot when it's the first time. Well, it's not my first time, I did it avidly when I was younger, but I didn't do it in a long time. And now I'm wondering, why does something sooo lovely and enjoyably hurt so much afterwards. But they told me that you get used to it quite quickly. I hope they're right.
What?! I heard that!
Get your mind out of the gutter. I was talking about the cool new bike I've bought today. It was WAY more expensive than what I wanted to spend, but it's a fabulous bike and totally worth it. I wasn't riding a bike in almost 7 years, but I decided to start again, and it is sooo much fun. It's almost like flying.
A friend once said that he wanted to be buried with his bike. Now I understand what he meant. It's really great. I'm
a little bit scared by the traffic, since I grew up in a small lovely village in paradise the mountains, and there was no traffic at all.
