Greetings from the SLC Airport

Originally uploaded by Fat Cyclist.

The Runner and I are headed to Santa Rosa for Levi’s GranFondo. Expect lots of short posts over the weekend.

Oh, and you know what’s more awesome than spilling your drink down your entire left side right before getting on a plane?

Lots of things, probably.

    Isn’t it a little early in the day to be drinking?

    Look on the bright side it could have been hot coffee and in the middle not the left side

    What’s worse??? Having “someone else’s” drink spilled all over your left shoe! :)

    Welcome to Northern California Fatty & Runner! It’s going to be perfect Fall riding weather here this weekend. The views from the top of the ridge are going to knock your socks off. Be sure to hold up Levi several times for photos. Get him to do one of your sister’s famous jumping photos. Have fun, it’s really a fantastic ride.

    Maybe dropping an airborne tablet into a bottle of carbonated water while in mid-flight on an 8 hour journey to Europe? I can assure you this will make you the center of attention in a heartbeat! Not to mention the comfortable feeling of having sticky stuff all over your clothes….

    I wish you two a great time in CA :)

    I know what is more awesome, putting your arm out to hold open a door for somebody else coming through, but the force causes you to dump coffee on your shoulder and down your back!

    I can’t believe you are coming to my back yard and I am not going to be able to say “yay!” as you pass by. Mostly because I’d have to yell “yay!” at 6,000 people in order to know if I’ve said it to the right person. But “YAY!” to the boths of you and I hope you have a lovely ride and no down time.
    Wish you were staying a while.

    Forgive me for taking so much joy in your displeasure, but that made me laugh aloud. I’m a sucker for slapstick, I guess.

    Have an awesome trip! Also, the drink goes in your mouth not on your shirt and The Runner’s shoe.

    Been there. Done that. So has the wife courtesy of (the then) Mr. Two back in 2003 just before boarding a long-haul from Heathrow to Singapore. Deep joy…

    Have a great trip and see if you can get a pic of Levi wearing a really uncool hair piece.
