Addiction 2023.1

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I was really hoping it was intentional. I had also intended to not snip as much of the quote as I did, but then it happened to look like I was just replacing your quote with the gif, so it worked.

Who tried to talk you out of the wedding? What reasons did they give? Were they persistent? What did you say in response?

Two-hour movies are made out of this kind of situation. You said ten words.

Practice marriage at 32. We peacefully agreed to go our separate ways. No kids. We had been a couple for five plus years and the marriage lasted less than two. Second one at 38, and still going strong. First wife had been married once, before me, and two or three times since.
