Now hear this

So today is my birthday and what did my sweet sweet girlfriend buy today? She bought herself this:




We took it (and my bike) out for a spin. My first ride since last July. She has been sucked in and is joining the ranks of the bike riders. I told her she has to join Foo now too.

That's kind of disturbing. Why did she buy herself something on your birthday?

See, Snowy gets it. And in her defense, she did take me to the Hyatt up in Incline Village (Tahoe) for the weekend. Hooked me up with a cottage suite-kitchen, livingroom w/fireplace, huge bedroom....and she did make sure that I got pampered.

I don't know April, in many ways I'm more excited about the bike. Is that wrong?

You are lucky. I would gladly give up a birthday and Christmas presents if SWMBO would buy a bike and ride with me.
