rides with rick: conversation edition

Freddie's birthday was this past weekend and whaddya know, birthday boy wanted to go on a bike ride. Let me rephrase that: birthday boy wanted ME to go on a bike ride WITH him. Now we all know how me + bike riding goes, but apparently Freddie's birthday brain forgot. He blew out his candle wishing I would say yes to a bike ride.
Dear God, I hope he didn't waste his wish on that...

Sunday morning we headed out for some two-wheeled fun. Me bike riding WITH Freddie means Freds riding a good 50 feet in front of me. I like to slow my roll and look at and/or admire everything we pass. I also like to hum the Wicked Witch of the West music and pretend I'm riding really fast through a tornado! Duh! 

^^^Freddie's that tiny spec way far off in the distance. No, not that spec. The one way farther away. 

I thought that for today, instead of focusing on all the "fun" we had (like I did last time),  I would focus on the conversation side of Rides with Rick. 

E: This seat is crooked and pushes me forward.
F: It's supposed to do that.
E: But now my pelvis is uneven.
F: rides off


E: Oh wow, that house is weird.
F: too far ahead to hear


E and F waiting to cross street.
E: We should go to that restaurant sometime.
F: Do they only serve sandwiches?
E: What?
F: Do they only serve sandwiches?


E: This house is pretty.
F: too far ahead to hear


E: Let's go left.
F: steers right
E: No, left!
F: I AM. 


E: I sure do love bike riding together.
F: slows down and turns around
Well, maybe you should pedal faster!
E: Maybe you should pedal slower!
^^^see?! Marriage is all about compromise!


And that, my friends, is how Freddie had a very, merry Happy Birthday weekend bike ride.

Ricky, I love that you still want to go on bike rides with me even when I am literally the most annoying person in the world. Thanks for only riding 50 feet in front of me instead of 100.

What a lovely gift you gave him going along on that ride :) The "too far ahead to hear" cracked me up.

Hahaha this cracked me up. I loved the "too far ahead to hear" and "rides off."

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...

hahahha the bike conversations sound pretty much exactly how it would go if Jason asked me to go bike riding. Best wife award for going with him!! Looks like you made all his birthday wishes come true :)
