The clingy-est thing I saw today.

This couple was crusing down the open freeway at top speeds. The hefty gentleman was wearing his helmet and the spritely lady (note that despite my poor drawing, it was an adult woman) was not.

Without getting deep into to the helmet law debate, I have to say I think she should have had a helmet or a bungee cord or something on....


because she could not even reach around her man's waist. She was merely clinging to his back!

I feared what inertia might do to her if they took a turn to sharply or had to stop quickly.

I hoped she had strong hands and that his shirt was made of a high quality cotton.

The bungee cord thing is hilarious.

Hey - I didn't know that you lived in Powderhorn Park. Is that true? A friend of mine once wore a Powderhorn t-shirt (she lives in Sibley) and she was accused of being a social climber. ha ha.

I totally live in P-Horn, right off the park. I have a P-horn tee too. Maybe I am a social climber!

well maybe their shirts were both velcro...one with the hook side and one with the loop side. they just stick together, ya know?

you should see how things role in Pakistan and India .. the motor bikes hold 4 people there .. two kids in the front, husband and wife in the back .. and everything runs smoothly .. not many accidents happen.
