Trifextra: Week Fifty-Seven Weekend Challenge

March 2, 2013
For the weekend challenge we have been asked  to write exactly thirty-three words in first person narrative.  By way of a detraction I have added a pretty image … my daughter’s bike that she rides in Rio!  
The bike
I often wonder.  “What it would be like to arrive at work as cool as a cucumber and with my hair in place?’ Tomorrow I will leave my bike at home and see …

    Ha!ha!A great idea,worth trying:-)Even I wonder, how people returning home in sweltering heat,after a hard day at work,look as fresh as Spring!

    Hahah I walk but still arrive hot and bothered!

    Oh that made me chuckle, like the feeling of driving in an open top car, the wind in your hair and on your face..only to look at yourself afterwards, with bed hair and panda eyes…well done Helen. 🙂

    I too ride my bike everywhere. I know how she feels!

    I always hated bike helmets for the same reason-they are hot and do bad things to the hair:)

    I really like your take on this prompt! Good job!

    I would have so ridden a bike to work, if I could. This is very descriptive.

      What I like mostly is the independence; don’t like relying on others and the cost of the public transport if it was available. The inconvenience is insignificant! _/\_ x

    I can walk to my work. 25 minutes to collect my thoughts, listen to my iPod, unwind……it is treasured time. But, it is a cold walk in the winter and a hot, humid walk other days. But, I wouldn’t trade a little heat or chill winds to ride a bus everyday. I think you should ride and enjoy the freedom of the open air in your face. 🙂

    I had a colleague who arrived on his bike for years. He always had to change out of his spandex and into his business suit before the day started. I assume he also applied copious amounts of deodorant, though I couldn’t smell it for his heavy cologne.

    So cute! I miss being able to ride my bike – can’t wait for spring! But I definitely hear you about being sweaty and having your hair ruined! Great take on the prompt!

    Damn funny, Hellen.

    Ha! I know the feeling. I’ve been riding my bike to work since September, and my hair definitely shows it when I arrive. But it’s worth the trade-off – it cuts my commute time in half, and I’ve lost 10 pounds. 🙂

      I totally agree, the advantages outweigh any inconvenience 100% 😉 x
