Bike NINJA





That's right. I'm a bike NINJA. I thought I'd let you guys in on a bit of what my commute looks like. Unfortunately it is dark and flippin' cold on my morning ride to work so I am unable to take pictures. Pesky gloves. I am truly fortunate to have my work day bookended by biking with one of my best pals, Matthew P. "Fatt Matt" Monahan. Also, riding through Flintstone, GA is much nicer than cruising (dressed as bike ninja) through the ghetto to my old teaching jobs.




Together Matt and I battle various weiner dogs (with tremendous success, I might add), play the thumb and doob games, and revel/laugh in our daily lives as Southerners and all that this entails. Matt rides a recumbent bicycle. He says it is more comfortable but he really just likes the attention. I told our students that it is a cotton gin. They believe me.

I admit, I do enjoy the attention. But I think I'd be getting more positive attention on your old route through the ghetto since most whities seem to have problems with the 'bent and black folk just seem to get it.

Not that I have any fear riding to work now, especially with a ninja for a sidekick!

Speaking of sidekick, I wish everyone could see the damage you can so easily inflict on an 11lb weiner dog with a kick to the doggie-face!
