Summer of George

It wasn’t a conscious decision to name my bike. It just happened. Just like the acquisition of  the bike, unplanned yet inevitable.

I was enjoying a lazy beach afternoon with my husband, all cheeky and happy, extolling the unexpected virtues of my new bike. I commented that since the purchase of this bike kinda sneaked up on me that it would totally change my summer. (Obviously, there will be some long-distance rides in my summer that couldn’t be undertaken without this bike.)

Without thinking I proclaimed it would be “the summer of George!”

And thus, my sweet little blue Giant bike will now and forever be known as George.

Never saw that episode of Seinfeld? Well, shame on you. Just kidding. Click here to watch this part of the episode on YouTube.
