well, answering the same questions gets a bit old, over & over, but you just have to remember that this person hasnt met you before, and he/she is just curious.

I have been known to have a little fun with it tho, this happened more than once....

them 'what year is that?
me 'twenty eight'
them 'nineteen twenty eight?'
me 'no, eighteen twenty eight'
them 'really? wow.....'

I enjoy walking into a place carrying a helmet and dressed in all the usual moto nonsense, and the question is...

them 'are you riding a motorcycle?'
me 'no, I just like to dress up'
them 'silence'
me (i cross my eyes)'tomorrow I get to dress up like an AS-tronaut'

I kind of like it when they ask those kind of questions, sort of like listening to call in talk radio, it makes me feel like a genius. Then I start ot worry, thinking about them voting.

I always like to tell people that I still have really over protective parents that are worried about me falling.

Nice!

That's a great attitude amigo. Doesn't always have to be about competition, does it?



Thanks for taking us along on the Cannonball!
