i luv my bike. While looking thru my webpages, or my AOL profiles, you might think I mean the jockstrap sort that is pictured here. Well, I like those. But my bicycle, it is the one inanimate object that has given me more joy than any other. I could be having the worst day, and a few feet of peddling my lil hiney on that, and some chemical thing starts working, and my face gets the teensiest smile..... Today it's beautiful out, sunny, cool air, lots of boys to swerve around while riding..... and the bike shop that opened up this winter, right around the corner - FULL of people, mostly kids, and the manager, 20-something Hispanic man who was so nice to me a few months back when both my tires were slashed, and they had just opened and he had to use pieces of a soda bottle to put between the repaired innertube and the tire itself.... way too busy these days for the usual simple wave and/or smile. But, that's cool, he has one of the best jobs in the world, fixing kids' bikes
