Like Riding a Bike / Como Conducir Una Bici

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

SAN GERALDO ASKED me today which was considered better exercise, walking or bicycling. I was so proud of him for not gagging on the word “exercise.” He’s not buying a bicycle but the question made me take a stroll down Memory Lane. I’m missing one photo of my father on a tricycle when he was a little boy. I scanned it and put it somewhere “safe.” I hope to share it soon. It’s priceless.

SAN GERALDO ME preguntó hoy que se consideró mejor ejercicio, caminar o andar en bicicleta. Estaba tan orgulloso de él por no haber amordazado con la palabra “ejercicio”. Él no está comprando una bicicleta, pero la pregunta me hizo dar un paseo por el camino del recuerdo. Me falta una foto de mi padre en un triciclo cuando era un niño pequeño. Lo escaneé y lo puse en algún lugar “seguro”. Espero compartirlo pronto. No tiene precio.

Man Buns And Bike Shorts

Another collection of man buns (and other hair-dos), which I love, by the way.

Speaking of man buns
While I was on a great walk Wednesday, a bicyclist passed me by. Well, many bicyclists passed me by, but this one screamed for attention. He was wearing padded, white Lycra cycling shorts.

I didn’t find his rear-end at all attractive, but I found it especially less so shining pinkly through his old and worn-out shorts. The image was further enhanced by the broad streak of sweat (I hope it was sweat???) running down the crack of his ass. I was unable to whip out my camera quickly enough to get a photo. So… you’re welcome!

MY MOCK-UP:
MUCH MORE ATTRACTIVE. BELIEVE ME!

And another thing I saw on my walk…
AGAIN… YOU’RE WELCOME!
