It Seemed Like a Good Excuse to Me!

Randy wanted me to go to the gym yesterday. I even packed my gym bag and brought it to work with me. However, at the gym I soon realized that the helmet for my scooter does not fit in the locker. Without a way to secure it, I went home.

I told Randy about this and he said he was disappointed in me. I’d let him down. True, I hate going to the gym. True, I’m not the most motivated person. And, true, my expanding belly isn’t the sexiest thing.

His response (I must admit, he is a logical fellow) was that I should have either a) asked the people at the front desk to hold it for me, or b) locked it to the scooter (by slipping the cable through the helmet and then through the bike rack).

Well, I tried the first option a month or so ago and the staff didn’t seem to keen on my request (though, they did it). And to be honest I never even thought of doing the latter. Never crossed my mind.

But now I know. And now I’ll have no excuse next time.

…of course, I didn’t bring my gym gear with me today.

    I think hearing that someone is disappointed in you is one of the most heart breaking things one can hear. That being said, I understand your concern with the helmet and I would have probably done the same thing.

    My Yamaha has a little peg that you hang the helmet on when the trunk is open, when you close the trunk, your helmet is secured to your bike. Yours might have the same. A whino could still pee in it, but that isn’t likely. Scary that I even think of that huh?

    HMM – I’m not so sure my Kymco is as technically advanced as your Yamaha (either that, or I’m not technically advanced). I’ll have to investigate.
