    Zero to 20 all at once.

    Each evening I prepare to commute into work something comes up. Got to be home by a certain time to do this, work dinner that, etc. This is all just to get my first major ride in of the year.

    So..... on Thursday I have eye surgery (putting lasers in my eyes) at the end of the day. Wife is picking me up to go there. That morning I'm going to do the 20.3 mile commute to my shower place then a 2.6 mile leisurely pedal into work (to avoid sweating).

    I plan on laying on the floor of my office and crying around mid-morning.

    When you get the lasers put in your eyes, you have to worry about a front light on your bike anymore. Pretty awesome.

    I got my eyes done about 8 years ago. The best thing I've ever done.
    Not sure what they will do when you are finished but they set me up and asked me to look at a clock on the wall and tell them what time it said. My response was...

    There's a clock?

    Good luck

    Thanks all. I may try the old "Squish a few grapes in my hand and put them up to my eyes" trick.

    A friend of mine goes in 15 minutes after I do so I'm going to see if there is an opportunity to cause her "concern".

    run out screaming it burns , and if possible stick your head in a water cooler
    Tact is for people who arenít witty enough to use sarcasm.

    Early helplessness is the price we pay for later brilliance. Or, at least our later capacity for non-idiocy

    How would I find the water cooler?

    Dark glasses, red tipped white cane, etc.
    "Your turn"

    That is the fun you get to bounce off a few things till you get there. I do the same thing when i go to the dentist , especial if there is kids in there waiting to go after me
