My Story

You might be old if…

You are cruising along on your pink beach cruiser complete with wicker basket at about 3 MPH and you ride past someone who looks like this:

Hot Wheels

It was 100 degrees out.

She looked like she was walking a runway.

No sweat.

She was moving fast.

Hair like she just stepped out of a salon.

Adorable clothes.

Cool road bike with actual gears.



After seeing her, I felt like this:

But my posture was much worse.

    You crack me up… I feel like Ms. Gulch a lot of the time.
    BTW, I hate that woman in the first pickture – we need to poke her in the eye!

    The contrasting pictures are too funny. I’m totally cracking up right now. :) Hopefully she was going for a really short ride to her neighbor’s house. That outfit is definitely not designed for a long bike ride. Of course, she doesn’t have kids with her. Who knows – maybe without my little ones in tow, I’d get all dolled up too and start cruising the town. :)

    Okay, that’s a bit much for riding a bike.

      I know but it made me feel so frumpy and old.

    I know I’m old, because I can’t imagine riding a bike in a miniskirt and flip flops. On second though, I wouldn’t have done that as a teenager, so I’ve always been old.
