The Slippy Slidey Slope of Doom

That's what I call the long, muddy incline that features on one of the walks through the woods.

McColleague and I take the occasional bike ride together when the weather is warm. Usually we cycle to the local pub, have a couple of beers and some chips, and then ride home again, full of lard and lager.

Running out of steam halfway up the Slippy Slidey Slope of Doom, I dismounted and decided to push the bike the rest of the way. As I slid back down past McColleague, the bike on top of me, I realised it wasn't going to be that simple.

"Are you all right?" called McColleague.

"I'm ok! I'm all right!" I assured her as I continued my descent. "Just a bit muddy. Can you help get the bike off me?"

I may need to re-think the route for next time.

Boz - I'll see what I can do....but not on the Slippy Slidey Slope of Doom....

Ginny - the bike is fine, and less muddy than me. Fortunately its fall was cushioned by my body.

Would it be *completely* inappropriate to use this opportunity to say "nice pins"?

I thought so...

L.U.V. on ya,

Bob- it's *never* inappropriate to say "nice pins". Well, almost never.
