Letters inspired by a recent (25 mile!) bike ride...
Dear Mother Nature,
Thank you for the gorgeous display today!! You never disappoint! (See Header :)
Dear On-Coming Drivers Who Move to the Center of the Road When You See Me Heading Your Way,
Thank you. When you do that, it lets me know that you have seen me and are not busy texting. A gentle wave of relief washes over me every time; it's like a little hug, and I appreciate it.
Dear Deer-in-the-Headlights-Woman at the Service Desk,
Yes, I'm aware that you have a garbage can; I walked past it to come into the store with my empty water bottle. What I asked you for was a recycling bin. You replied, "Oh. Well, yeah, we have one, but it's in our breakroom," (as if the break was a mile down the road.) Too much trouble, I guess. Never mind. (I took it home with me.) May your dreams be haunted by a landfill full of empty plastic bottles.
Dear Propel on-the-go packets,I love you. You're my BFF.
When the unsecured (empty) dog kennel flew off of your flatbed trailer and crashed along the shoulder (right where I could have been, had I not been riding on the opposite side of the road, towards traffic.), I thought that you would learn something. However, I stood, dumbfounded, and watched you and your wife/girlfriend put it back on the trailer and drive away, without securing it! YOU ARE A FLIPPING ASS! What is wrong with you people?!
Dear Guardian Angel,
Thank you for keeping me a safe distance from inconsiderate, dangerous dumbasses.
Thank you so much for working with me on yet another long bike ride. You are so cooperative, and I don't take that for granted for a second. Keep up the good work! :)
