Big Al’s Blog – Look Out Mall… Here I Come
I said I was going to do it and I did. I did my 25 mile bike ride yesterday and as promised, it was rough. It was hot. It was muggy. It was windy. Those are not ideal conditions for a long bike ride but, hey, I did it. And I remembered why I fell in love with bike riding a few years back. It does kind of clear your head. Sure, there were times that I wished I was anywhere else but on that damn bike. But just like any other workout, it was hard, but it really gave me a feeling of accomplishment when I was done and I could walk back into my bar and say, “25 miles.”
Hopefully, this little bike ride will jump start my fledgling work out schedule. It’s been so sporadic it’s not even funny. Maybe, I’ll even get my girlfriend a bike and we can ride together…ehhh, I really don’t see her as the biking type. She’s kinda more of the high heels type. But I could be wrong.
In fact, I feel so good, I’m going shopping. Man, I haven’t shopped in so long it’s not even funny. I haven’t bought anything for me, for my girl, for my mom or dad, nobody. So, look out mall…I’m gonna make you my “B” this weekend.
What else am I shopping for? I have been thinking of adopting a dog. It’s been almost 2 years since I’ve had a dog. I really miss having the jingling of doggie tags running around the house. Then there are the parts I don’t miss…taking him downstairs and out the door to pee and poop and then picking it up. Eww. Arranging my schedule to make sure he gets a walk in and regular bathroom breaks. I remember Queso chewing up my pillows on my expensive couch and looking at me like, “What???” the time it takes to house train him. Oh, you know…I think I just talked myself out of it…
