Friendly Neighbours

The most random thing happened to me the other day..I'm walking down my road after a long day at work, theres 200 bucks worth of meat in my one hand and a handbag full of school books in the other and I'm thinking to myself, "All I wanna do is sleep!" I look up and there he is; my knight on a shiny motorcycle...

His lips are moving, but I can't hear a word he is saying. I pull John Mayer out of my ears so I can hear. "Can I offer you a lift?" he says again. "Seriously?" I respond. "Seriously", he says matter of factly. I look down at the meat in my hand. My arm hurts and I still have a good 2 blocks to get to my house. It's hot, I'm cranky.... What the hell, who says ubuntu is a black thing anyway? I stuff the meat into my handbag ( big handbags have nothing to do with fashion, I tell you!) while my rescuer turns the bike around. After a brief inspection and a quick calculation of how I'm gonna gracefully mount this "horse", I climb on.

"So, come here often?" he asks, as if he does this kind of thing all the time. It was a short drive and it proberly isn't a big deal in the greater scheme of things,but this dude made my day. Not to mention, gave me a cool story to tell ;)


  1. Wow--pretty cool. It can be a rare thing to be offered help by someone. The motorcycle ride makes this experience even more awesome.
