    My little Cinderella story

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    *sigh* I am so twitterpated. I met the cutest boy at the race the other day and by the time I got back from my "go," he was gone.

    He was parked in front of me and asked if I had any advil. I told him that I didn't, and I usually did, and that because I'm a girl I thought it was law that I had to. So he flashed his pretty smile and said he was reporting me. At that juncture I almost, almost asked if he wanted my phone number in case he couldn't find me later.

    After some wandering I came back to the truck and he proudly announced he had found some drugs. I laughed and called him an f'ing doper. We chatted for a bit about where I was from in Oregon as he drug out his rollers and I shuddered in fear. Told him my old roommate had rollers and I never bothered because I couldn't afford to fix the sheet rock I'd inevitably crash through.

    Later he asked if I was ready to give them a try and I resisted the urge to mention say that there were things of his I wanted to ride but it wasn't his rollers. What? He had a really nice bike but it was just too big for me.

    So I saw him again at the start area as he was coming back to retrieve clothing he had left. We chatted a bit more and he said he'd see me back at the parking area. I promised myself I'd remember what kind of bike he rode (I can say it's orange and white) and what team he was on (I think his kit was dark grey and light blue) but that didn't work. Fantastic, now all I know is that I have a thing for a tall skinny racer boy. Wow, THAT narrows it down.

    *sigh* Probably wouldn't happen anyway, probably would have gotten shot down but now I'm even more motivated to attend even more races! Couldn't have have left me a damn bike shoe? Isn't that how it goes? And somewhere in there his fairy god mother gives him like, a really shiney new skin suit and pumpkin made out of carbon fiber and stuff?

    He's a roadie, as far as I know. And one of the few who can make a cycling cap look wicked hot. Oh well, swooning is fun. I can only tackle so many confidence issues at once, and not beating my own self in a race was more important at the time.

    I dont know what it is, but cycling makes guys look hot! The guys at fatcyclist.com were obsessing over bald spots, and I said, just keep your helmet on, you'll still be sexy!( lol)

    Id go back to races. If you dont see him, well you still have the bike!!

    Just imagine him online, on a web board somewhere, wistfull, missing the girl that got away. Keep your eyes open at the races; he'll show up again I'm sure. Oh! And keep Advil about yourself! And maybe a cookie. Boys like cookies...
    Be yourself, to the extreme!

    <snort> This was the best laugh I've had all day, thanks!

    I sure hope you run into him again. Maybe your next ride to the neighborhood coffee shop. What kind of race was this? Was it all locals?

    What are rollers?

    to ensure the chasing by each person..is mutually felt...and the effort is mutual in the end.

    I've heard that bacon works. Though...probably not for skinny racer types. Maybe some vanilla flavored GU, perhaps?

    Smurf - here's to hoping that he's now frantically searching for your bike shoe!
