You remember when your grandfather used to complain about having to walk to school in the snow uphill... both ways? Yeah, these two go to the rival school where everything is always downhill and they were both just cruising.

On a completely unrelated note, the recent trend towards enforcing the ban on leetspeak and AOL-ese around here has me all hot and bothered.
I love grammar.

Well, I picked up this bike really cheap. There's a lot of snow,
in the winter-time, starting December, I equally ride in the
ice, snow and -20 Celsius weather. I find it helps with a female
frame to keep control, as it's easier for both feet to maintain
equilibrium on snow banks, etc.

Concerning the accident, well ...it was in a street, and 4:15PM
with no bike paths. Near the parked cars, I guess both cyclists
assumed it was fair game to be used for bicycle passage.

You know those movies, where an object falls and hits someone
in the head?

I actually saw the other dude grab his head with both 2 hands,
about the pain and horror of it ...? It was quite an impact for me, too!
I inquired about what the f*k he was doing not looking at where he
was going, but he didn't speak English or any language that I knew.

Anyway, luckily, skulls are not made up of egg shells...

wonderful... plowing into an idiot foreigner who knew no English...

Would be a wonderful experience if "he" was a hot "she" instead.

Dazza 11-07-04 12:18 PM

Yeah and you were banging in the other sense of the word. ;)

Which one of you was going the wrong way?

Could he speak English before the accident?

Helmets are still a good idea. (Somebody had to say it).
