I benched the idea, because, really what the hell would I be doing with a bicycle? Right? So, I clipped and saved the pic of my Cruiser, Blue Girl and decided I would wish for her and use her for inspiration, and, put my silly obsession with her away and went on about my business. But, before I gave up completely I checked Craigslist for any used bikes I might be able to justify buying.....alas, no bikes fit the bill.
Still lightly harboring my desire for said Blue Girl, I mentioned her to my Dad, well, actually, I had printed out a pic of Blue Girl and was showing her off.....joking about how I might like to have a bicycle....especially Blue Girl. Dad, ever the hero, says, 'take the bike in the garage, sell it and buy the bike you want'. SWEET! He delivered the bike to my house on Wed - I posted an ad on Craigslist and today sold it for just the amount I need to buy Blue Girl - free money I say and yes, it's still irresponsible, but, I DO NOT CARE.
Blue Girl and I will be united tomorrow, early a.m. as roomie and I are headed for Wally World for household staples.....(this is going to be bad, I see an emergency room in my future).
