biking to work

so i finally got out of bed in time to ride my bike to work. i headed off with my red messenger bag over my shoulder and my ipod shuffle jammin in my ears. all was going well until i approached the taco bell on center street. their sprinklers were on FULL BLAST and watering more sidewalk than grass. because i was riding on the sidewalk on the side of the street with traffic coming at me {i know i know} i couldn't just jump the curb and ride on the road, i would get hit! so i just barreled through hoping i would get wet...how dumb. not only did the sprinklers soak me from the waist down, they got me in the face, soaking my hair, glasses and shirt. luckily i am good at riding one handed now {thanks to spin classes} and i wiped my glasses off on my shorts, only to realize that it didn't do much good because my shorts were wet too. then when i got to work my boss didn't realize i was at work because my car wasn't in the parking lot and proceeded to frantically call my phone {which i didn't have because i forgot it at home}. only after 45 minutes did she come downstairs to ask where i was and found me sitting at my desk. phew. if you're looking for excitement ride your bike to work.
