I forgot where I put my bloomers.

As if we didn't already have enough stuff in our garage, yesterday my upwardly mobile husband, Justin, and I went and purchased bicycles. For ourselves. Not for our children. We bought adult sized 21 speed purple bicycles outfitted with what seems to be seats designed for the butts of four year olds.

I have not ridden a bicycle in sixteen years.

Riding a bike again was delightful. I didn't expect the bike wedgie, but that was delightful as well. When I was a young-un I had a bike with a banana seat. I didn't realize how good I had it then. Banana seats are the proper seats for the butts of thirty year olds.

I have placed this sticker on my bicycle.

Groundskeeper Willy is sexy.

Tonight, Justin and I have scheduled a bike riding date. I plan on seeing if I can coordinate my body so I can pedal and shift and brake without running into a parked car.


  1. AWESOME!! before you know it? triathlon. that's how it starts. welcome to the dark side.

  2. There are the 2-cheek bike seats that might be good. I think Camping World carries them and probably most bicycle shops. I've never tried one but did meet the guy who developed them. Take a look and try one at a local shop. Let me know what you think of them.

  3. depending on where you live, REI carries the good, comfy, bigger butted bike seats (as Queen songs float through my head.)
    Also, looooove the Willy!
