I’m not usually the type to do anything special for my birthday, nor am I one to buy myself birthday presents. This year, both happened. Bobby planned a special birthday for me, and I splurged on a new bicycle. After a long search and a lot of bookmarking, I happened upon the exact bicycle I wanted – the one I always had in mind – in the window of their local shop. I may be quick with my flamingo purchases, but I usually take a lot of time to decide on purchases – especially an investment like this. It’s rare that I pick anything up without hesitation, but this bike was an exception. And considering how much I’ve been riding it around, I’d say it was worth it!
