    Very Short Commute Club: Weak One

    Yesterday while on my arduous 5 block ride to work, there was a hail storm, that put dents in my helmet. Today was also an eventful commute, I ran over an earthworm that stuck to the tire and got flung into my face because I don't have mud flaps. Thankfully my employer provides showers for us commuters, so was able to scrub the worm slime from my mug. Also I took advantage of my employers in-house masseuse, to work the knot out of my back that I obtained from mounting and dismounting my bike, and carrying in my heavy laptop computer.

    That sounds like a pretty crazy hail storm, and earthworm in your grill is never fun. But you lost all sympathy when you said "in-house masseuse."

    Did someone wish that "May you have an interesting life" curse on you or something? Earthworm parts--like, totally, EWWW man.

    Masseuse, that's a lovely bennie.

    Around here a masseuse provides happy endings. A massage therapist is the one we want for fixing abused bodies. Not that a masseuse doesn't help.
    A coworker of mine is a massage therapist on the side. It is quite nice when I injure myself.

    Be careful! With that kind of escalation you're going tog et a chipmunk running through your spokes and be covered in cute little chipmunk guts.
