Loss For Words

This evening I rode around the the neighborhood the long way. So many people were outside and I heard a lot of comments.

A lot of times people just talk to each other and I catch something about "unicycle!".

But several people said some strange things.
One guy said something close to, "You're missing a bike." I think he meant "wheel" not "bike"!

Later, another guy said something like, "You lost a pair of... bike." Huh? English was clearly a second language for him. Again... doesn't he mean "wheel"? But I'm not missing a pair of wheels. Maybe he remembers seeing me on a tricycle?

One dad had a bunch of kids near him and made up a story about how I crashed my bike up the road and I was just riding what was left over. hahaha!

I might have to bring a little pad and pencil with me from now on. It's hard to remember that strange comments people make.


  1. I had a good run early one morning. it was my first time going over 100' and I went about 300'.

    my Daughter(5yrs) chanting "go dad, go" running behind me.

    near the end of my ride, I past a new dad pushing a baby carriage. and he comments "looks like I am going to need to get a unicycle."

  2. Hahaha! Sounds like you're daughter is as excited as mine about my unicycling! She liked to mark how far I went with chalk.

    Sounds like you're making good progress rodbot! Keep it up!
