Me, I just walked home 10 miles drunk, I feel kinda tired but mostly just really ducking hungry.
should sleep but listening to banging choons
I'm sat in my office waiting for an ice-cream demo class to start. Fun times..
To tell you the truth. I got home about 5 hours ago. I locked my bike up in my garden securely. However I live in constant fear that my bike is going to be stolen from me. I wake up about twenty times a night, at the slightest sound, to listen out for someone smashing my back gate in (yes) and somehow taking my D lock off. The sound of a van big enough to carry bikes too. My house is on a corner and in the hot weather I have both windows open. I was drifting off to sleep about half an hour ago but thought I heard the click noise my wheels make (was just a bird). I decided to finally go downstairs and just check it was there. Went downstairs. The living room light was on and there were empty beer cans strewn everywhere. Went into the kitchen. One of my housemates was brushing her teeth. The other was drinking with his friend who looks about 50. I said something like 'you're up early lol' and tried to look out at the bikes but they were in the way. I went to get a glass of water. His friend started talking to me about the wiring in a big house. My housemate was like 'dee dee it's been a good night time for bed' and I said yeah I'm going back to bed I just came down for some water, and walks out. His friend says 'can I come with you?'
So here we a... haha no. I'm in bed writing this still shaking with nerves not knowing if my bike is ok.
It would be good for you to have some peace of mind.
A few times I've had to come up with excuses as to why I've just ran outside panicked. It's worse when I come home after a night (im not even on drugs)so I guess I could just bring it in on those nights. Actually I'm ok most nights, its mostly the weekend when you hear a lot more noises from taxis and stuff. The millkvan every day gives me a blood rush though.
you sure love that bike. My lovely bike.
