A Tribute to My Bike



I'd write a poem if I had any talent writing those. Having found none even after I begged for my muse to pay me a visit, I choose prose instead.

My biking days are over. Those refreshing morning trips I used to take from my place to Winter Park Starbucks, with my laptop in my backpack, my (67) cap on my head, have finally come to an official end now that my bike is given away in preparation for returning home. I now have to settle for biking around our dismal neighborhood in Kuwait with my boys, nephews and nieces before fu6oor in Ramathan. As much as I miss my Kuwaiti neighborhood and those fun little rides with the kids, Kuwaiti streets are not very bike-friendly.

Well, I guess talent writing prose I do not have either (didn't catch episode III yet but I can still mimic Yoda.) And no. I'm no Star Wars fan, I watch the new ones for Natalie Portman's beautiful presence.

Touchdown in 9 days :)

Ohhhh.. how I love biking...I never tried to go in Kuwait out of shyness. Also, I would have had to go alone - no one would go with me! I miss biking Noony. Biking along beautiful forested roads, smelling the fresh air, feeling the speed as I move along, the wind in my hair...
Hmm. Gulf Rd. you say Moe-isha? Hmm...

Jewaira. Believe it or not, I miss that little baker's oven.

Moe. Up(date) yours :P

MrsB. 7ayach bil jabriya in ramathan before fu6oor. I'll be the crazy old woman biking with a group of kids :)

Moe again. Try biking on the new, not so new anymore, shuwaikh beach, more family based, thus less annoying boys. (A little 10 year old actually stopped me and a friend once while biking somewhere near eljazeera el5athra and asked: are you girls? yes coz with my boobies and long hair, he couldn't tell :) Jabria's my New York (hold your laughter everyone) but it's where I can do anything without worrying about people staring too much.
