A Bicycle ride with Cynical Luke...

A Bicycle ride with Cynical Luke...
Bike riding. Healthy stuff. Bonding with daughter. Girlie giggles echoing against the dorky drawl of Dad. It's only the beginning. Jogging by next week. Tennis coming in the afternoons. Lifting weights by Christmas. Bulging biceps by June. Old body renewed...It will all begin with the healthful bike ride to the Winn-Dixie with my sweet daughter.
Front brakes didn't work. Glided through a stop sign with a stupid grin on myface. Got the "number one" from oncoming old coot. He was probably only a coupla years older than me. Turned on to less traveled street. Gulped down half a cloud of white flies. Got to intersection. Splashed through a rank smelling puddle. Not a germpo-phob, but I think I may have typhoid. Chain came off. My last pair of good jeans are three years old anyway. Shadowed a diesel furniture truck most of the way in traffic. Alveoli stiffening. Avoided puffy dead possum. ( or was he really dead??). Took an old shortcut that does'nt exist anymore. Jumped a curb that made my back spasm. Was offered change and half a old sandwich at intersection. Tried to return red box flick with Brendan's Mortal Combat in it. Wasted 25 bucks on the latest lotto scratch-off. Envied illicit freedom of dumpster divers while riding down the back of the old W/D. Somehow, some way stopped by Ormonds famous "Ghost train " at RR crossing. Cellphone jostled out of my pocket....daughter picked up and gave me the pity smirk. Gears stopped shifting....got stuck in tenth gear. Home is uphill all the way. Stomach cramps from activities unrelated to computer. Forgot milk. Squished bread. Double bagging ice cream sandwiches did'nt work out. New bike added to already cumbersome Christmas list. Black cat crossed path on way home. Orange cat ...I'm sorry...I thought for sure he would move.! (He did , but the way he looked at me when I passed him made black cats seem lucky) . Ate ultra large and Mega healthy Three Musketeers bar before entering driveway so no-one else would discover it. ..........ready for another ride tomorrow. This health kick is gonna kill me....
