christmas slip-up

just a few minutes ago the lbs called and asked for my step dad. It turned out to be one of my riding buddys, so i told him it was me, and i asked what he was calling about, and he was like... ive said to much already... click. This was a dead give away that i am geting something bike related for christmas, and i think it might be a new fork, i hope it is. the lbs only calls your house if you order something, plus im the only bike rider in the family.

the only reason i think its a fork is thats the only thing ive been talking about wanting, but i think part of the reason is just being sick of riding the mz comp on my p.1

It's one reason why I never ask for bike parts for christmas, I know what I like, my parents don't.
