Funny(haha) I just wrote a story about cycling (for Theme Thursday) last week. Soooo this week’s theme is “Bicycles.” Grasping at tires should be the title for this story.
This is child’s play she laughed as she jumped on the bike.
Then it started to shake and fall.
“Jureen when was the last time you rode a bike?”
“Well – I didn’t exactly say if I had”, she said with a sideways smile.
I started to giggle.
“How are we going to go on a three-mile bike ride
with the boys if you don’t know how to ride a bike?”
The girls had jumped for joy when they had gotten the invitation
by the two best looking seniors in school. The plan was to go for
a ride to the park, feed the ducks, and come back.
“Maybe if girls didn’t have to wear skirts and were able to wear pants like
boys it would be easier to ride these contraptions.”
I chuckled. My friend Jureen always had very modern ideas about women.
“They will be here in a half hour. No more talking you have to at least look convincing.”
So for thirty minutes the best friends laughed while one taught and the other learned.
It was a memorable day but not memorable in the way the girls had planned. They pulled each other up the back stairs tired, dirty, and sweaty.
“Ummm I think this iced tea may be the best part of the entire day.”
“Certainly not!’, Jureen giggled.
I was hoping Jureen wasn’t going to say anything positive about the boys
trying to “sneak a kiss” at the park.
“The best part of the day was when you taught me how to ride a bike.”
Both the girls grinned as they knew it was Jureen’s unskilled bike riding that had saved the day.
“I have an idea. Let’s ride bikes to the park next Saturday!”
‘We should definitely stay away from the duck pond the next time.”
Jureen with a knowing smile grabbed my arm, as we walked to the sitting room to tell mama our funny story.
Another wonderful Theme Thursday – Thank You!!!
