a friend and I were at my parents house, drinking coffee on the back deck. Son Number Three comes out, hops on the exercycle and begins pedalling.
SNTh: BYE MOM! [waves]
Me: Bye hon! Where you going?
SNTh: I’m going to Mexico!
Me: [impressed] wow. That’s a long way away… I’ll miss you!
SNTh: It won’t take me a long time because I’m taking the EAC – the East Australian Current!
Me: ohhh… uh, well yeah…. um… that will be an interesting ride.
SNTh: Yup. Here I go! I’m flying now!
Me: you’re flying?
Friend: …on an exercycle
SNTh: yup! WOO-HOO! [pedals furiously] BYE MOM! I’ll see you tomorrow!
