New Level of Fredom

So I was on my normal coffe run when I noticed that Dunkin Donuts had their whole bean coffee on sale for 2 for 8.99. That's a pretty good deal so I got two 1lb bags. Once outside I realized I would have difficulty riding the 3 miles home carrying 2 bags of coffee. So after carefully analyzing the situation, I ditched my Gatorade bottle and put 1 bag in each of my water bottle cages, they fit perfectly.

What a sight, a sleek silver road bike with bags of coffee in the bottle cages. Luckily, I did not see another cyclist on the way home. I'm sure I would have been reported to some department or another.

I may have approached an untouched level of Fredom.

So were the Donuts up to pie quality?

I dare say the coffee was, but if you had a cycling specific top they would have fitted in the Pockets. Definitely a case where fredness does not pay off.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
