Calorie Craving Creativity

Admiring the head tube lug and longing for lunch

In which I improvise to compensate for a lack of preparation…

I have everything I need for an all morning ride.  I depart early, enjoy the outing, and eagerly anticipate a shower and lunch.  Meanwhile, Mrs. Pondero leaves the house to run errands, and I return without a key to a locked house.

I sit on the front porch in the breezy shade and cool down.  Craving food, I ponder eating the Clif bar tucked away in my bag.  Ugh…not that desperate yet.  Maybe if I take a couple of photos of the bike, Mrs. Pondero will return and I’ll get real food.  She doesn’t return.

I realize that “no key” doesn’t mean “no transportation”.  So I pedal about 3-4 more miles down to the nearest grill.  I have me a perfect gas station cheeseburger, and think that being prepared is not always the best thing.

  1. There was a place in Missoula. The Mo Club. For like two bucks you could get a frosted Pabst mug and a burger.1984. I thought I was, but I really wasn't that prepared. I wouldn't trade those times for a second.

  2. I use cycling as a means to justify my eating, sometimes. Or is it all the time? :)Glad to note you're enjoying the milder weather we are experiencing – not including today!Paz 🙂
