Best ten bucks I ever spent!(4 posts)

Best ten bucks I ever spent!Steve Davis

I found E.T's post on "your stupid bike" very timely. My wife and I have been happily married for 15 years and we now have 4 boys under the age of ten. Lately, my riding has been an issue so this is a "payback weekend".

On Friday my wife went from Boston to Texas to spend the weekend with some girlfriends. She left Friday morning and won't come home until Monday night. That means I'm alone with the boys for the weekend taking them to soccer, church and everything else. Today was especially crazy. Soccer started at 8am and didn't end until 3:30.

When I was driving home from the games I passed a cyclist... so as soon as I got home I called a 15 year old neighbor to see if she could come by so I could go for a ride. She came over in ten minutes and I was on my bike and out the door in a flash. And I had a great ride.

When I came home, I gave her ten dollars and booked her for tommorow afternoon so I can ride then too. Yippee.

Just don't tell my wife, okay?

The line starts behind me boys and girls... don't be greedy... we'll want this to last as long as possible.

Be the bike.

When I add the babysitter's fee, the money I owe you guys and the plane fair to Texas, I'm thinking I got ripped off after all. :-)
