Day’?s Verse:
One man pretends to be rich, yet has nothing;
Another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth.

Proverbs 13:7

The following is a true email exchange Ian and I had.

Me: I’m still undecided about riding to church. Incidentally I’m at 2,925 miles total as of today.
Ian: why are you thinking of not riding to church?
Me: Well, I just don’t feel like it’s much fun pitting myself against the hugeness of that hill*. I’m inclined to just do it, because there’s really no good reason not to, but it just isn’t very fun.
Ian: I guess my feeling was that its weird to be willing to ride 20 miles home but not 7 miles to church. Not that I’m trying to pressure you to do it.
Me: Hahaha when you put it that way… I guess I will ride 🙂

What else could I say? Put in perspective, it does look a little weird.

  1. It doesn’t sound weird not to want to ride a route that may be fewer miles but includes a huge hill. You certainly ride enough during the week to skip a ride that isn’t fun for you.

  2. if i were ian i would drive real slow right next to you eating a bag of potato chips, and then leisurely take my seat and nap during church.

    although im sure the sweat you work up getting there would give you that “pentacostal glow” that would really add something to your shrieking and flailing.

  3. It’s not at all illogical for you to drive to church if Ian is also driving to church and you can ride with him. Not putting any extra cars on the road.
