My beloved road bike was stolen off of my porch on Friday (and it was locked, too!) Basically, I’m the saddest girl that I know.
Who ever has my bike doesn’t need it more than I do. I keep thinking about how excited I am to ride my bike to school on Monday, or how I can’t wait to ride with my dad when he comes to visit and then I remember I don’t have a bike any more! And then I think how sad it is that I don’t have a bike OR a car… it’s not a good feeling to desire speed and distance but have no way to satisfy the need. Sometimes you just have to GO somewhere, you know? I’ll just have to run.
When I discovered it was gone, I found a little green plastic mermaid in it’s place and I was convinced for about 30 minutes that someone was doing a scavenger hunt to trick me. Then my fate dawned on me… so I vented my anger by taping this sign to the front of my house:
I love the hand I drew… I’m sure the elementary school right down the street was thrilled.
Today I’m volunteering at the Children’s Museum, hopefully that goes well… I need something to go well!
