A long time ago…

“As I was walking home this evening, a little girl was riding her bike in the middle of the street. She still had the training wheels on as she wobbled and struggled to peddle. It reminded me of when I was little and how badly I wanted a bicycle but couldn’t get one. My parents wouldn’t let me have a bike until I was 12; my mom was too afraid I’d hurt myself. I’d pass the bike section in the store and just look, having given up asking my parents about it long ago. I eventually did get one after much pleading and begging. Amazingly, getting my driver’s license at 16 and the subsequent borrowing of the family car passed without incident.”

ummm… isn’t this a kottke post? (and therefore not fit for these pages 😉 )

Funny – I was convinced you were English until I read this post. On the Net, nobody knows… until you start talking about Your Stuff. (Although that’s not right either, as I didn’t get any clues from your ‘Traceline’ posts. Odd.)
