I’m trying not to freak out right now. (I’m fine, don’t worry) One of the young men that I work with is a friend on FB and is a biker. He evidently went for a ride last night and took some very cool pictures, I think with his phone. Had they been taken while he was stopped I wouldn’t be the least bit concerned – but some of them are clearly action shots, taken while the bike was in motion.
So here’s where the tiny bit of “mama” in me comes out…
YOU DUMB LITTLE FUCK, WHAT IN GAWD’S NAME WERE YOU THINKING??? YOU WEREN’T THINKING!!! DO YOU WANT TO FUCKING KILL YOURSELF? SHOULD WE JUST SCRAPE YOU OFF THE PAVEMENT NOW? THINK YOU’D LOOK GOOD BEING PICKED OUT OF THE GRILL OF A SEMI???
Oh wait, it gets better. Given what I know about what part of town he lives in and the buildings I could identify from the few still shots, that dumb fuck took at least some of those on the motherfucking interstate.
In his defense, he is married and I suppose it’s possible that she was on the back of the bike and took the pics with her arms wrapped around him. But I doubt it. Given the angle and where the headlight is in the frame, consistently, that would have been quite the feat.
And he’s not usually an idiot. He’s almost done with a Bachelor’s degree, making good grades, and has been offered a full time position in the department – and those aren’t offered to just anyone.
It just baffles me.
