I guess it’s better than beer…..


I often want to shake the inventor of the picture window by the hand, but this morning I wanted to kiss him on the mouth. I looked outside at traffic while I was waiting for my toaster to pop out a hot, crispy waffle and three stories below something I saw a man on a bicycle doing knocked my socks off. He was dressed all in yellow spandex, had incredibly hairy legs and was sporting a contraption on his bicycle helmet that made me laugh and clap my hands in glee. It was one of those hands free double beer holders with a straw that I've only ever seen someone wear as a joke to a Halloween party. I'm including a photo just in case you don't know what I mean.

I'll try to get a picture of him creatively drinking his morning coffee tomorrow, but at the speed he was traveling, factoring in the drag that his hairy legs must cause, and noting that he had TWO cups of coffee in his helmet holder--- his heart may have exploded today and I'll never see him again…

*Alan is praying to the coronary gods that Spandex man's heart has stayed intact to give Karen a chance at capturing his image*

Perhaps if you jumped out in front of him this morning wearing spandex (lime coloured?) he would pause, sensing a kindred spirit...

*laughing* well, other than being a fellow fan of the devil's bean, I sense we'd have little in common.

(a)I like to ride my bicycle at a sedate 5mp while parade waving, and (b)there isn't enough baby powder in the world to get me into spandex.

A leather cat suit on the other hand....

So now you're going to lie full length in the gutter to get a shot of him tomorrow, right?

Hmmm...*Karen in a Cat Suit* - Meow!

I need one of your windows on life, Karen - the view seems like fun.

More fun...Karen/Baby Powder *StopItStopItStopIt*

:-}

*laughing....*

And I'd probably have to lie on the bed and then jump around to get into it kevin. I have a fishnet catsuit that's a piece of cake to slip into. Go figure...

There isn't a gutter Suzanne, or I'd try that. But I do have the camera on the table by the window at the ready. I love it when people provide me with free entertainment.

Lovely to see you sweetpea. Thanks for stopping in.

For all you know one was coffee, and one was a sedative. Takes the edge off.

Karen from Mentor said...

*wonders if she should worry that John's comment sounds like the voice of experience...*

We're assuming it was coffee. I'm thinking a man's got to have something much stronger in his hat to wear yellow spandex. Unless his name is Wolverine.

Karen from Mentor said...

ooooooooooooh. wolverine in yellow spandex.
that would be a happy morning indeed.

*grins*

But I hear in his x-man persona wolverine thinks that spandex is silly. *sigh*

On a related note....[related to me anyway] I once saw a guy riding a bike while wearing a utilikilt. Hugh jackman would look great in one of those. [he's got cute knees]
