Hey, what a great biking icon :)
It was his frequent craning around to look back that really got me.
Heheheh - never underestimate the power of a woman on a bicycle! ;)
You rule. But, then again, we knew that. I mean, it's why we read and all.
You should have loudly hummed threatening music, like the "Jaws attacking" theme. ;)
You're assuming a breath capacity far beyond my abilities. But it would have been funny.
You know what really would have shocked the hell out of him?
If you yelled out "on your left". ;)
I really didn't want to play leapfrog with him in traffic. He was quicker off the mark by a long shot.
he was probably looking back thinking, "dude, like, that chick is TOTALLY into me."
Okay, that's even funnier!
You rock! I'm so thrilled to hear how well you and Ferrett are doing with your exercise plan. I'm not there yet, but I'm hoping to start back to the gym after doc releases me this Wednesday.
You inspire me!
Oh, thanks! I was just amused by the circumstances this morning and had to share
LOL that's great! And your icon is faboo!
Oh, I forgot to tell you; guess who jogged all the way to the grocery store last night?
Surprisingly tough, even with the unexpected thirty-second rest at a DON'T WALK light, but the slow hills near the end were hell. Still, I can say I did it. Mostly. Except for the WALK light.
You RAWK!!! Good job, sweets! I couldn't do that, definitely.
Do you have toe straps on your pedals? If not, you should get some. It let's you use the muscles to pull the pedal up, not just push it down, and you haul much more ass.
No, and I'm afraid of falling on my face if I have to stop and can't get my toe loose. This is your mother the klutz, remember?
The "bike zombie" idea would be SUCH a motivational force for me. That's GREAT! And, of course, reminds me of an old, bad joke.
A guy is vacationing in France and has rented a sports car to go driving in the wine country. He stops at a Stop sign and a cyclist pulls up next to him. Knowing that the French are famous for their cyclist, he decides to make his own statement about German engineering and PEELS out of the stop sign, leaving the cyclist in the dust, then resumes a more normal speed, laughing. Only to look into his mirror seconds later to see the cyclist gaining on him. So, he hits the accelerator again and sets the speed climbing. Again he leaves the cyclist behind, only the see him gaining again. He accelerates more. 80 kph. 90 kph. 100 kph. He's FAR overdriving the winding country road, and still the cyclist gains on him. Finally, he comes to another stop sign, and the cyclist FLIES up to him and stops beside him with a long squeel. He jumps out of the car, about to demand how the cyclist managed to keep those speeds when the man huffs at him "Messire, thank God you stopped. My suspenders had gotten caught in your side mirror."
That's awful. And now my coworkers want to know why I'm laughing. [g]
btw re your title for this post?
"you make the rockin' world go round..."
*grins and runs away*
