A disturbing question
« on: April 22, 2008, 10:25:01 PM »
This question came up while riding today and I can't seem to get it outta my mind.
Do you think we eat more mosquitoes on a ride then eat us?

I got a bug in my mouth the other day on "Coconut Grove". In light of the Bee sting from a few weeks ago, I freaked and swatted with both hands........yes.....both hands.............on "Coconut Grove"......Guess what happened next. ;D

Hey Crazy,
I only ate one today so not bad.  Thank your dad for singing on the trail.  If he had not been singing, I would have ran into you head on on that section of Flatwoods.

Truly a subliminal message, because that is the song that was going through my head the last few miles. :)

As long as none of them had that delicious red filling in um when ya swatted um, you'll survive. That's why I gotta drive home with the windows down... that and the stink, I wish they had a shower or something at the hole.

Skeeters are tasty compared to love bugs. I've already seen a few around so the season is near.

speaking of singing. anthem1 wouldn't stop singing the stupid speed racer song.  it's like he's being paid to promote the new movie.
