    Delusions of grandeur until reality stuck

    Okay, I had a sort of funny thing happen to me today. Today's ride was to be a 50 miler that I had done 2 weeks ago. On that ride I had everything go wrong: Dead legs right off, couldn't unclip and fell over, ran out of water , got the crams and so on. Anyway, today I was better prepared, I had a place to fill my water,I had another Cliff Bar for fuel and my jersey even was fitting better due to my weight getting down. I have been pounding legs all week in the gym, and was a little concerned, they felt great too. So, I was pulling out from the park where I took a small potty break and hear some female voice yell at me. I THOUGHT I heard them say "Got a nice ass." I was sure the spandex bike shorts were doing something for young lady, so I looked back to see who it was. It turned out to be a gal at yard sale holding a back pack in her hand. It then dawned on me that she said " Got a nice back pack" that she thought that I needed to buy. I just busted up right there knowing that the gal had no idea what I was laughing about. Oh well, the delusions of grandeur were nice for those few seconds and it turned out to be great ride anyway.

    Maybe she was flirting with you to sell the backpack. As in: "You have a nice ass, buy this backpack!"

    I never have such luck. The last person to comment on my butt was my friend Dennis, who told me it's getting smaller.

    I would say she was showing interest. If it was your @ss or your wallet, we will never know...
    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    You realize also that she may have said what you thought she said, and them went with the backpack pitch because she was embarrassed about being heard.

    Ya... that's what must of happened. At least that is what I will keep telling myself. Actually, I told my wife about what happened, and she said she would not be surprised if some gal enjoyed my posterior in spandex as much she does. So, I guess my wife likes it, and that is all that really matters in the end anyway.
