Overheard at the bike shop:


Do you have any cup holders?

A new guy rode with us Tuesday night...and I noticed lines under his spandex. I didn't have the guts to tell him, "Hey, I've been looking at your butt for the past few miles and I thought you should know--you're supposed to be nekkid under those shorts!"

hey, everybody's gotta learn sometime, from someone. we're not born knowing this stuff!

@Limes -- that would be BIKE seat.

@Doozy -- seen it, likewise decided not to go there.

@SOMH -- agreed! Having been on both sides of the question, I'm always amazed at one's ability to decipher information...patiently (some days it's the same question after the same question after the same question....).

That's ok, I had someone come on our ship once and ask if they could see our basement.
