I went car free a little over a month ago when I had to turn in my lease and was to fed up with gas prices to get a new vehicle. Plus I didn't want another $250/mo car payment.
Ever since then I keep hearing wisecracks from my friends and family and it's starting to drive me nuts. Almost to the point where I am going to tell them all where to go if they don't knock their crap off. It was ok at first but it's getting old now.
I left someone house one time and as I was pedaling down the driveway I hear "GO! GO! GO! GO PEDALING FOOL GO!" which inspired my screen name here...
I hear wisecracks like:
- Is it time for an oil change yet?
- You gonna take that to Bell Tire and get new tires soon?
- When winter comes are you going to get chains put on your tires?
- You're washing your bike? Are you going to wax it too?
I guess it will be poetic justice when they decide to get a bike too...
I rode past the gas station this morning by my house... $4.15/gallon!
I was hoping someone I knew would be filling up so I could yell "$0 Per Gallon Baby!!!!"
Soon I will also be able to give them my "fat" clothes to wear since I have dropped 20 pounds already and still going strong. I am almost under 200 pounds for the first time in over 10 years! I feel great!
