A Pretty New Toy for the Happy Happy Boy
So Clay has told me from the beginning of our marriage that he wanted a motorcycle, and from the beginning of our marriage I said NO WAY HOSAY (jose)! Well, it's kind of become clear that Clay and my relationship isn't exactly the kind where I say no and he says, "okay". Clay is about the most stubborn mule I've ever met (and he would say I am just as stubborn I'm sure- makes for some lovely discussions), and pretty much he informed me that it wasn't a matter of IF he would get a motorcycle...just WHEN. So anyway...birthday/christmas money...selling crap money...all seem to add up to a motorcycle for Clay!
Now I have to say...I find myself being a little crazy. All this time I've been terrified of them. I still am kinda. And it is nerve wracking knowing there are no seatbelts or air bags or doors or ANYTHING guarding you from a ginormous vehicle CRASHING you to your death. But....I have to admit it. Yesterday I LOVED riding on the back of it with Clay. It was so fun! I somehow managed to feel safe...and we made it out alive. For now. We both wear helmets, that is definitely the rule.
But now there's no way Clay can ever whine or tell me no if I decide to go surfing whenever the opportunity arises (the way most women feel about motorcycles, HE feels about surfing..supposedly shark deaths are more than motorcycle deaths. Just incase you were wondering, that is definitely NOT true. But somehow Clay has managed to make it fact in his brain).
So anyway, we will be enjoying the rest of the summer cruisin on the bike. I'm thinking/hoping this will get Clay out of the house more and doing fun stuff with me!
Incase anyone is wondering, its a 1981 Kawasaki 750 LTD.
