sunshine

It was 69 degrees today. That's almost 70. Sure, it came with a tornado warning, but even so it was welcome. And do you know what 70 degree weather means?? A bike ride!! Jamey got the tires fixed up yesterday and today we went for a lovely ride through the neighborhood. I say lovely because the word makes James cringe & it was killing him to go so slow. I don't know the last time he just took a leisure ride and didn't gear up for a "real" ride, so whatever, it was good for him. I still don't have a helmet (who would've thought I'd need it this soon?) so I wore Jamey's and he went without. Good man. I don't know at what point in my life I became so adamant about helmets because my parents never made me wear one when I was little- sure my mom wouldn't let me cross the street, but she didn't make me wear a helmet. Maybe it came when I started riding motorcycles, it's just stupid to not wear one. Who needs a brain? Me. So you can laugh all you want but I won't be the one in a hospital bed with brain trauma.

I love my bike.
