Round Wheels

Judith and I on our red tandem bicycle arrived in time to thoroughly enjoy the backyard barbeque.

I chatted with Hal who’s wife Alexandra graduated MIT with Judith.

We: football.

They: Buckey Balls and nano-bots.

We: multiple beers, burgers and chips on paper plates.

They: Pate, Chablis and thin sliced grilled Salmon on fine China.

The girls momentarily left. I told Hal how Judith pedaled us here. We laughed uproariously!

“Wished I thought of that; Oh my god hilarious!”

“She never looked back, hahahaaa!”

Finally, Alexandra announced cheerily “Hal gets to tandem home with Roger; Judith stays.”

Surely I mentioned the shifter locked in first gear?

Yeah and the seat now wobbled; handlebars adjusted off-center.

They: waving innocently by the toolbox.

“Call us when you get there!”

Hal was sloshed, hindering the pedals.

Did I mention the drive home was uphill?“OH, Just put your feet up Hal!”

    It’s a new age story! I always feel bad for men these days with all those sitcoms of dimwitted men chugging beer while their smart, thin wives kick them in the balls constantly. I actually have ghost pains for them in my nonexistent testicles. OUCH!!

  • I love the way you put that Zolton. I think I have lots of tales to tell regarding a life growing up with 5 sisters, a brother and an old school thinking dad. I try to give equal time to my characters as you may start to see in the tit for tat shenaigans I imagine for them. It is fun trying to do it in 150 words or less. The earliest sitcoms involving men and women varied between dimwitted wifes(Lucy) and reasonable husbands(Ricky) to the big-mouthed oaf bully (Jackie Gleason) and his sharp-barb-hurling mouthed wife Alice. I am for equity and parity but understand the funny part of folks trying to maintain thier own in relationships. This is fun. Thanks so much for your very thoughtful comment. Cheers, Rhino

    So… I guess that means… payback is a bitch and nothing pays back like a bitch! ha ha… or something : P

  • Zolton,I think the “bastards” out there are pretty rough dealing payback too. This story was the sequel to the first story Driving Me Crazy in which he played passive agressive with her and he felt smug after feeling insecure about her bossiness then giving a payback as it were. This one he gets to struggle home with the weight of a drunken male companion ostensibly as repayment for laughing about the former bike riding incident. We used to say in the military; payback is a medivac. Payback schmayback, on with the humor! Woohoo!!!!
