I think it’s been at least a week since I’ve been on a bike. Probably more like ten days, really.
But I’ve developed an awesome new move, one which I am extremely proud of.
Specifically, I am able to help Susan move out of the bed and into a wheelchair — smoothly and efficiently.
Furthermore, I am able to also do this move in reverse, moving Susan from her wheelchair into an easy chair or her bed.
I make it look easy. I’m that good.
I admit, though, that it took some practice for me to get this move right. Not too long ago I would grapple and struggle, bruising my (patient) wife while I tried to figure out how I had managed to plop Susan face-down on the bed. Or nearly drop her on the floor.
But not now. Now I cleanly and elegantly help Susan get to where she wants to be, with what appears to be no fuss at all — and with a bare minimum of discomfort on Susan’s part.
I have never been so proud of mastering a move in my entire life.
PS: The New Fat Cyclist gear — jerseys, arm warmers, shorts, and the wool jersey pre-order — are still available, though some sizes have sold out. Check out what you can get here. Also, a reminder: Twin Six is (absurdly generously) donating to me 50% of the purchase price of all (not just Fat Cyclist) Men’s XL-and-larger and Women’s L-and-larger jerseys. If you’ve been wanting to both get a jersey and help defray some of my expenses, this is a really great way to do it.
