I need to get down to basics.  

 

1. Bike rider - Races or no, I need to ride.  If I’m not a biker, what even am I?

2. Kettleballer [sic] - I got stronger over the winter.  Better to keep it than lose it. 

3. Teacher - Keep in touch with my students, maybe provide some learning.  Keep the school habit going with my own kids.  

4. Hausmann - Mrs. Sloth is working more than she did in the beforetimes and I’m home all day. I ought to do my fair share around here.

And important existential question. Let's hope we don't have to find out anytime soon.

Isn't there a saying that goes "if you're not a biker, you're a piker"?

 

No?  Nevermind then.

I feel like I’ve been trying to find that out for the last month.

You mean besides the the fact that it’s sexy?

I like kettleballer.  For one thing there are too many uptight KB people (I’m not talking about you KBGirl, seriously) who get worked up about nomenclature, but mostly it’s fun to say and a baller is an ass-kicker.  So it should be considered a big compliment.

5/3/20 Sunday

1. Biker - sad sack dog got loose.  I spent my planned biking time searching for her.  Turns out she got locked in the garage.  She was totally freaked out and made some serious regression on becoming a good companion animal.  I still could have gotten a ride in, but it would have interfered with the scheduled nap.  

2. Kettleballer - wasn’t planned anyway.  

3. Teacher - not on Sunday

4. Hausmann - I worked my tail off.  4’ pile of laundry is down to one basket.  Pulled a huge bag full of dead raspberry branches out of the bush - I don’t know why, but they freak out Mrs. Sloth. I’d just let them rot.

Oh, sad sack dog.  Why are you like this.

 

Also yes please do max out both the biking and the kettlebell quest so you can go smash some lady's car window again in like a lycra-clad superhero when she locks herself out of her car...

A guy in his midlife that's in better shape than me, that's what.

Maybe it's because I lived in those neighborhoods, but it's kind of eerie how empty everything is in this video. They were shooting in the middle of what I think is Eighth Street just outside downtown (coincidentally to the theme of the song, right across from the County medical center) in the middle of the day and there are NO cars. I'm glad city folk are taking this more seriously than out here in the burbs.

Poor sad sack dog.  Also, naps are awesome.  Great job on the laundry!

 

Sad sack dog is better now.  She's willing to trust me and maybe Mrs. Sloth if she has food.  No bueno on the kids though.

I'd rather avoid that sort of predicament again.

I'd bet we're in pretty similar shape.

 

If I go to the grocery store there's about 100% people masked.  If I go to the store in Coon Rapids for my dad, I'm the only one.  It's weird.  Man, I love biking around right now though, the streets are clear and I no longer fear for my life.

I was actually thinking of the Pavel fanboys.  You don't want to say soemthing wrong around them.  You, you're not so bad.

Definition of Pedestrian (entry 1 of 2)

1: Commonplace, unimaginative, basic


If you get down to basics, you cycle. If you cycle, you're a cyclist. If you're a cyclist, you're not a pedestrian. If you're not pedestrian, you're not basic. Thus, you both are and aren't basic. BOOM! True Contradiction! Computer Explodes!

:) It took me a couple of reads to catch your logic.  A long while back my name here was Schrodinger Sloth; I don't remember why.
