From somewhere west of Huddersfield in the UK, the call came out. It went like this:
When I was a young lad, we used to play a word and memory game called: “My old mother went to market” it went a little something like this:
Little Bobby: “My old mother went to market and all she bought was: Tomatoes”
Little Jimmy: “My old mother went to market and all she bought was tomatoes… and some potatoes” until it had traversed the circle of children to me:
Little Fat Lad: “My old mother went to market and all she bought was tomatoes and some potatoes and some carrots and some lettuce and … ” already the witty one ” a rocket powered cyber ninja weasel”
So the meme proceeds as follows:
You nominate a blogger who you know will respond and ask them to add to the list of things they have bought only in June that are cycling related. Come the end of June Fat Lad is going to try and track it’s course and see what we’ve all purchased in June
1. Fat Lad went to the bike shop in June and all he bought was: A new PC971 Sram Chain and a Cassete Spanner and a chain wear tool.Hey Mike J, in honor of your soon FIRST blogiversary -- you get to carry the meme forward.
2. TOB went to the bike shop in June and all she bought was: a new pair of ruby red Sidis and some X-Series Cleats (but it's only the 4th!).
Blame Fat Lad.
