And . . .
As I was taking off my helmet in the parking area this morning a man came over and asked me how many miles to the gallon my bike got. I told him, "Over a hundred." We continued to talk. He wanted to know what kind of bike it was and where I got it. We talked about how there isn't any place to get one new in St. Louis, but to keep an eye on Craig's List. I know I'm not the only one who bought a Symba when they were available. It is funny, so many people seem infatuated with my Symba. Lots of people say they wish they could have a bike just like her, yet when they were available they weren't exactly a hot item.
As we finished our conversation he said, "I've seen that bike parked here and I wondered whose it was. I'm glad it is someone like you." I thanked him and said, "By the way, her name is Miss Billie." He laughed, and I added, "And it ain't because she sings the blues."
- 50F/10C with some clouds for the ride to work.
- 55F/13C and a little more cloudy than in the morning for the home ride.
