...those bicyclists that ride throughout Athens? In big packs? Like a team? Well we saw them this morning on our ride in to church. All I have to say is that I would hate to be the guy in the middle because I know that I would be the one responsible for making the whole team crash. In the middle of Prince Ave. So I said this out loud to Chris and then he gave he this little gem of knowledge. When you bike in a group, they put the "weak links," or the new guy, in the middle. This way they can help them. Like if you are tottering (like I would) they help keep you from not falling. They will also hold onto your handle bars and somewhat drag you along if you start to get tired. So, there's one more reason why I will never be a cyclist. My first reason is that they expect you to ride on grown up bikes (like a 10 speed for example) and I prefer a banana seat.
Here is something else to ponder about today...our sermon at church was about love. And in the sermon, Lisa (the pastor) made mention of a quote (and I wasn't fast enough to write down who wrote this, but anyway) that resentment is just irritations that have been memorized. Oh man. Looks like I have somethings to work on. Sheesh. Isn't that great though? Not that I have a lot of resentment or whatever, but the quote itself.
Changing subjects...So we were sitting in the living room yesterday morning and the doorbell rang. Chris and I just stared at each other because we were not expecting company. I drew the short straw and went to answer the door.
When what to my wondering eyes did I see? A box on the doorstep from Anthropologie!
Chris was ticked because it wasn't supposed to be delivered until this week and he had high hopes of intercepting it before I got home. But, no such luck. And now he is making me wait the two more weeks until my birthday. And he is keeping the box in plain sight. It is a form of torture.
I will conclude this post by making note that I have now blogged for 31 days in a row. A whole month. And a long month at that! It has become part of my daily routine, so I just might keep it up. We shall see. Thanks for reading this month. And thank you for all of your comments. I do so love to get comments. Almost as much as I love getting boxes from Anthropologie.
