It just occurred to me this afternoon: Christmas is coming fast, and I haven’t gotten off my duff to do anything about it!
It shouldn’t be too tough to take care of Mrs. Noob this year. She wants a pair of leg warmers, because she thinks mine are cool. Actually, they’re warm, which is why she wants a pair. She also wants a new pair of biking shoes. But she already has carbon-soled Specialized, so she might have to get along with those a little longer. And last month, she asked for a pair of knickers, which, although she says she doesn’t want them anymore, might be just the ticket for milder, but not yet warm, days.
No, the big dilemma is what do I want for Christmas? Geez, I haven’t thought much about it. Give me a few minutes and let me thumb through some back issues of Bicycling and some old Nashbar catalogs.
Another idea that will not break the bank is a Road ID. I don’t have one yet. I think it would be a good idea to get one. I’ve left a $2 coupon for one on Mrs. Noob’s desk.
I think I’ll retire to my home office and compose a good argument supporting my desire for these objects. Heck, I’ll be happy to get just one of them.
Have you mailed your Christmas list to the North Pole yet? What did you ask for?
