bonjour l'homme blanc

So, the girl and I are rolling over to some dirt trails after work yesterday ...

up a snarly little roller, pumping like a pro, is some dude in a BikeTripper uni. Like I've mentioned before, i haven't been to this LBS yet ... but, with all the kids they throw out on the trails and on the roads ~ I like them somethin' serious.

Anyway, the dude is motoring up the roller we're about to toss down and the jersey he's wearin' makes me happy so I can't wait to grab his attention with a bit o' wavey-wavey. As I start my salute, I notice this brotha's got the biggest damn grin on his face. I mean, pure joy radiating from a grizzled mug. Lord it was fantastic to see.

Before he even sees my wave he's already waving at us. And have to be honest here ~ Sabine was in front all cutey-like, so I'm sure he never even saw me. As we're bombing down past him, he smiles all beauty like and we all say "heys" and I'm just flat out lovin' it. Googly-iscious, you dig?

So, the girl dives us down another roller and we finally flatten out on an approach to the trailhead and I have a chance to flip a few words at her. I comment about how happy the Tripper guy looked and what a cool lil' interchange was just had. She replies, yah ~ that was Paul.

"Paul?" as I rummage through the databases for any Paul's I might now.

"yeah ~ Saadoff," she suggests.

"the Rocky Lobster guy?" I ask in astonishment.

One and same. Now, the only reference point I have for this hombre is the mad-scribbles thrown down on DoubleHonkey (see Book of Cool).

Double Honkey ... that shit rules.

So, when I pour over the 2Honkey rantings again ... the image of a smiling yahoo bike rider is NOT what comes to mind. I see HonkeySquared as some brooding dark force hunched over his microbrew, unshaved and wild-eyed as he fumes on about fast-food consumerism and the aMErican decaDance of imperialism and disregard.

... but this guy looked ~ happy.

Weird.

I hit the B.T. for the first time last week (during my super double top secret S.C. trip to get Stacy a girly b-day present at Best of Everything) .... fine vibe, neat stuff, you can hit Charlie Hong Kongfor a quickie organic asiani meal and double bonus if something good is playing at the Rio ... like We Jam Econo next week .... on the P.S. tip ... I am trying to save my pennies to buy a R.L. next year ... its local, its stylish, its functional ... what more could you want?
