This tale starts out like a typical day in my world. I walk about 2 miles to the gym, and then I run on the treadmill. I put my earphones in and run. Well yesterday, when my run was over, I decide to get onto a stationary bike and do a ten minute ride. It's the kind of bike that has a screen and you can race or play a game while riding. I usually play a nice little game of "Catch the Dragon", but yesterday I chose to race. I have no idea what came over me, but for the first time in my life (all 35 years of it ) I felt like winning someone at something. So there I am, riding my bike, my 10 other computer characters racing and buzzing by me. I feel like I am in the middle of a hot sweat and am afraid I may be permanently suctioned to the seat...but I keep on going. I am in the middle and everything is going fine. I'm not first and I'm not last. As I watch the scenery pass by I notice that I am in a park on an evening ride. Next thing I notice is that I am all alone and the track is way off to the right....I am riding towards an animated Cola machine!!!!!! FAIL!!!!!! Those designers that make up the game sure know how to throw a girl. Total fail, see why I don't compete?
(Today I drank a coke. It was fabulous and now I won't need another one for a couple of months.)
