The Thrill of the Ride!

Ah, the thrill of the ride! You’re wearing a comfortable pair of men’s argyle crew socks from SammySocks Etc. covered by a couple of black, ankle-high boots. A strong pair of jeans, a long sleeve shirt, a black leather jacket, a pair of leather gloves, and a helmet finish off the ensemble.
The wind rushes past. With the helmet’s visor in the up position, tears form at the corners of each eye from the speed of the ride.
The smell in the air is crisp and clear. Dew rests gently of the grass as you speed by. The great outdoors! It is good to be outside. The ride gives you a chance to clear your head. The cares and worries of the world just seem to fade away.
You spot a fellow rider, and, of course, throw them the universal wave down low. The camaraderie of you and your fellow riders is a wonder to behold.
Now back to the serenity and calmness of the ride. You are just about to reach the crest of a hill. What lies beyond? No one knows. It’s the mystery …..
“Mark! Can you stop riding on your lawn mower for a couple of minutes. Your doctor is on the phone for you. He wants to talk to you about your new hemorrhoid treatment. Something about it being in arrears?”
Ah, the freedom of the ride!
