I've been pretty un-fun company for the last week or so. Long hours at work, various fiscal traumas, and the complete and utter lack of a social life have made me one cranky chick.
So, it was good to see yesterday that HappyHappyFunBike's restorative powers still work. A simple ride down curvy side roads to work, with the helmet visor up and the wind in my face, let me bebop into the shop with a spring in my step and a smile on my mug. It's hard to be stressed out or get too mad about anything when you're wearing a big, goofy grin and have spent the last twenty minutes waving at excited kids in the backs of minivans. Man, kids just go nuts when you wave at 'em from a bike; their eyes light up like they just found a real, live pony under the Christmas tree. :)
