The middle-aged Freds have gone too far

Driving back to the office after lunch today I noticed two of them on the sidewalk in front of my favorite coffee establishment, head to toe in Performance bike get-up.

Their flat-top pedals pinned their hybrids upright against a steel garbage can frame while the two of them butted helments and tangled mirrors so they could make out.

No. They were not riding bikes. It was more like they were perched over their twin sloping top tubes with one toe on the ground, while using their tongues to play patty-cake.

So what you're saying is that they were having a good time while you were not. Need a hug?

Exactly what I thought as I turned my head away from them back towards the road. Alas, I've no proof. Only the stench of bile between my teeth.

Indeed. What's your phone number, and, can we wear our helmets?

It was standard to WSD. I think.

Otherwise I'd be hospitalized. Hospitalized as in, "Eww..." just doesn't cut it.
