I knew it was coming...

...and it came like a wave of the ocean.

My moped finally broke down tonight. Not just some small problem, but something in the ignition that I couldn't fix on the side of the road. Well, being the modest guy that I am, I chose not to hassle anyone for a ride and just pedal it home 7 miles. After I found out how exhausting pedaling was after 1 mile, I decided to push it. After about a half a mile of pushing it uphill on gravel, I said "fuck it, I'm leaving it in the ditch." So, the moped hidden away between a couple of trees, I walked another 2.5 miles (which is the most I've walked in my entire life, I get exhausted walking up a flight of stairs) before a couple of guys in a truck picked me up, went back for my moped, and hauled both of us home. Now, I'm dizzy and aching all over, but the bike and I are home. It's kind of funny that it killed at the point I had been the farthest from home that day. Also what's funny is that had it been any other machine, I would have destroyed it on the spot. Not the moped, though. All the other trouble-free miles really paid off. I should have seen the breakdown coming, and on my way to the place that it broke down, all I was thinking about was how I couldn't believe how many trouble-free miles I had on it. I'm really tired right now, so I'll investigate the problem tomorrow.

Serves me right for bragging so hard in the "SUCKERS!" post. :)

Oh, and I would like to once again thank those guys who picked me up. You guys are lifesavers!

I'm so incredibly tired, I can't even believe I'm still typing. I really should stop and go to bed. That would be advisable, as I don't think I'm gonna be able to keep at it for very... ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

You've got to watch out for that 'Karma'

It'll get you every time !

Say "It never breaks down"... and guess what happens? It breaks down

Say "I never get sick"... and you will get sick.

You've got to watch that stuff.

TWO POINT FIVE MILES !!, you whimp. I had to walk 15 miles once out of the bush in northern Michigan wearing a pair of stiff Hi-Point Alpine Star motocross boots.

15 miles in boots!?!?!? you whimp

when i was on my tour in 'nam i had to walk 34.6 clicks wearing bamboo slippers while dodging ak-47 rounds. once i got to the station, i delivered my message, they took my slippers and sent me back out.

where i was taken captive and mangaed to kill 4 of my captors with nothing but a bicycle chain and an apple. i got away and ran to the shore, about 200 miles,than swam to hawaii where i slept for the night, then took a paddle boat back to los angeles, once there i bought a pair of flip flops and ran to my home in northern iowa.

panzy...

I beg to differ. It was two in the morning and I had just left my friends house. The bike didn't even start in his driveway, but did I wake him up and ask for a ride? No. Did I wake my parents or anyone else up and ask them to come get me? Nooooo, I just walked the bike home (well, I pedaled it for a mile, pushed it for a half a mile, and put it in the ditch and walked another 2.5 miles, that's a total of 4 miles without a motor and on dizzying sleeplessness before a couple of guys picked me up.) I almost fell asleep in my friends chair, but I decided to not be a burden and just walk home. Straight-edge people aren't mean. In fact, It's been my experience that alcoholic jocks are the meanest, most sadistic people I've ever come in contact with. If a straight-edger has ever been mean to you, you probably brought it on yourself.

Heyyy, you live in norther Iowa? I live on the east edge of South Dakota. If you don't hate me for being straight-edge, we should go riding sometime.

Ohhh, okay. Sorry about that, I'm a little slow. Yeah, I'll come up there some time, that would rock. It's nice to know there's a punk scene nearby, the Sioux Falls punk scene consists of a bunch of kids who dress the part but are too scared to dance at the shows.
