I keep claiming I will, but I can't until I get a bench, sneakers, and a cardigan!

That was a Mr. Rogers reference.

My old roommate kept talking about me riding my bike to and from work, but I cannot get him to unlock his bike from mine. I bought a bike rack a few years ago to make a detachable boat tail, but I am not sure I still have all of the right pieces, but I may rent an Econoline to get the rest of my stuff, and I have told him if he does not unlock my bike, he can come for his.

My bike is locked to a water pipe. His is locked to mine.

I rode my bike 7 miles to my old job. Nowadays I walk to work... about 50ft.

... and the Prius doesn't have an alternator, and nobody should pay thousands to fix one.
