Sarah asked me to blog tonight because she is too ‘tired’…. like she has anything going on. Ha. She somehow thinks being a RN, working out, cooking, cleaning, blogging, taking care of two pets, playing Wii, drinking wine, and having 12 different Apple products, a house, and a car is sooooo tiring. Please.
Thankfully, I have none of those problems.
As many of you know, I thoroughly enjoy spending time on my Bicycles. All 9 of them to be exact. But what you might not know is that I love working on bikes as well.
To be able to take something apart, completely disassemble it in every sense of the word, and put it back together while still holding on to that trust that my precious bike isn’t going to fall apart while I’m riding it is such a unique feeling. It honestly gives me a sense of joy to do it… like, once a week.
But sometimes I screw up, because I don’t always know what I am doing. But sometimes the screw ups still turn out awesome.
I decided to paint one of my bikes recently, and I thought neon green would be the perfect color. Little did I know that you have to let the base coat dry for like 400 years before you spray on the neon coat or a bunch of crazy shit will happen. At first I was pissed, and all, “WHY ME!? OH THE HUMANITY!!!!” and all that jazz, but then I realized this is a one-of-a-kind paint job, and IT’S FREAKING AWESOME.
All in all, I’m super pleased with my crack-happy bike. I get tons of complements on it, and it is unique, which is what I was going for in the first place. Who cares if it was a accident?
After all, if we threw away everything that was a mistake, we wouldn’t have chocolate chip cookies, ice cream cones, potato chips, Frisbees, Slinkys, Silly Putty, Post-Its, or Velcro.
Love, Little Brother.
P.S. Let me know if you need a bike. Or bike work done. Boohuff@hotmail.com
