My Bike Ride

I hadn't been on a bike for over ten years. The guys at the bike shop made fun of the Huffy bike I own. My car just got stolen. Now that I'm on the street, all vulnerable, I am fearful of True Chicago drivers, especially driving on Milwaukee Avenue. Especially, because I don't pay attention, I like to daydream. I am afraid of being crushed underneath a truck. I don't like how I look in one of those bike hats. I don't want to sweat in my work clothes. I am going to ride on the sidewalk, I don't care about bike ettiquette or the bike rules of the road. I dont like my nieghbor calling me a yuppie for riding my bike. I made it home safe, I'll it try again tomorrow.
