I’m going to have to face it: summer is drawing to a close and, all global warming aside, it’s gonna get cold and before it does it’s going to get cold and wet.
Now, it’s been a few years but this ain't my first rodeo riding the bike in the cold and/or the wet, and I recall a couple of things I have learned along the way:
- It ain't no thing to keep your torso warm. It’s all about the hands and the feet and the head.
- Dry and cold is pretty easy to deal with, but when you add wetness into the mix, things get more complicated. (Yuk, yuk)
So, not being one to get caught with my junk hanging out, I have looked ahead and I've ordered some waterproof socks, some waterproof “storm” pants, and some waterproof gloves. I’m just getting them off of the inter-web, after perusing the pictures and reading a couple of reviews. I've been doing that more and more. It’s so handy. Did a little thought of something you might need slither through your brain? If you can wait a few days, just sit down at the ‘pute and pull the trigger on some likely item. You’ll have a little surprise waiting for you soon on the front porch. It’s a wonderful thing.
And, btw, I can’t wait till they get those drones to start delivering. I’m going to call ‘em names & shit, because they’re just machines and maybe some human being is operating it and will hear my lusty verbiage and will thereby be somewhat gladdened.
“Hey, dumb-ass piece of mechanical dogshit! Don’t be fuckin’ looking at me with your goddamned LED’s or whatever. Just give me my motherfuckin’ package, drone!”
And all like that.
Anyway, we're ready for a cold, wet fall, so bring it on.
