The Hog

My sailor rides a motorcycle.

I’m not motorcycle chick material. I’ve never ridden on the back of his motorcycle. I don’t even like to watch him ride. It seems so dangerous. Cruising along with nothing but a helmet between his brain and the pavement–there’s such scope for disaster. I can’t even think about it too much.

So he was surprised (in a good way) when I approached him with a grin.

“I’ve found the perfect bike for myself! We can finally go for long rides on lonely highways together!”

“You’ve seen a motorcycle you like?”

I nodded, waving my phone in his face so he could see the photo.

“You took a picture of a motorcycle?” Now I had his attention.

“Isn’t it cute?”

“It’s more runs to the mall than cross county rides.”

“Perfect! It meets both our needs! We can finally share my love of shopping!”

  1. Ok, the photo followed by…’My sailor rides a motorcycle’ had me very concerned for your sailor. Glad to know it was yours and not his. (Bad enough us tar’s have a weird image as it is).

    • Your comment made me (and my sailor) laugh out loud. Until you pointed it out I hadn’t realized the picture placement and first sentence made it sound like my sailor rides that pretty pink “Hog.” Oops! πŸ™‚ Be assured his motorcycle is slightly less cute and a touch tougher. (Although I’m sure he’d look dashing on that pink princess bike!)
