I Hate it When He's Right......

It's that time of year when I want to ride my motorcycle to school because the weather is so gorgeous in the afternoons. The mornings....not so much.

This morning I decided to ride the Harley. The temperatures were pleasant enough, so I was willing to go through the extra trouble.

Riding the motorcycle means I have to transfer my calendar, phone cord, school keys, cell phone, driver's license holder, and wallet from my regular school bag to a bookbag that I wear on the motorcycle. It also means I have to take shoes, shirt, hair thingies (theoretically, and not after tomorrow), and lunch in the same bookbag.

Today I was wearing a blouse with a tank top under it, so I put on the tank and a t-shirt over it. When I ride the motorcycle I leave my hair wet and ATTEMPT to fix it when I get to school. I have hair gel, hairspray, hair dryer, curling iron, and brush at school, along with a vast array of other toiletry items.

Hubby glanced at me and said, "You're going to need a jacket."

I resist wearing jackets most of the time, particularly the leather one because it makes me feel like a trussed-up hog, and particularly on days when I won't need the jacket in the afternoon. I'm willing to suffer a little (I SAID A LITTLE) in the morning for a nice ride in the afternoon.

I reluctantly put on a sweatshirt over the t-shirt and tank top that I was already wearing. I had on capris and sneakers, but my legs don't get cold.

I nearly froze on the 8-mile ride to school. It's so hard to predict how it's going to feel on the bike compared to how it feels standing in the yard.

I hate it when he's right.

But it surely was nice coming home this afternoon. With three shirts stuffed in my bookbag.

It all pays off! less clothes as the day goes on is a good thing! (that sounds odd...)

I have the same problem when I go camping off the bike. I definitely will need the leathers for evening rides, but packing them on the bike when you're already loaded with camping gear is a real challenge.

Aren't you glad it's bike season again? Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
