Bikes

     So yesterday I went back to court (actually two different courts, two different counties, am and pm) for the first time in months.
     I would like to say the experience was like riding a bicycle but it was more like falling off one. Yes, been there, done that, too.  Actually, considering each appearance was under an hour and I had the middle of the day to nap and the end of the day to fiddle with the newly-arrived Sony Pocket (Yay!  More distraction!) it's not a completely intolerable way to make a living.
     But, as usual, I digress.
     Speaking of bikes...
     I've suddenly decided there will be one in Lara & Cole's future.  Actually, more like their past.
   
Cole: Hop on, baby.
Lara: You're kidding me, right? It's got to be like 20 degrees.
Cole: Hike up your skirt and put your arms around me.
Lara: Man, the things I'll do for a story...not to mention a black and tan on the house.[climbs aboard]
Cole: All set?
Lara: [slides arms around Cole's waist; concludes method of transport has its perks; learns something about "bartender"] Hey, big guy. Is that a gun under your  jacket or are you just glad to see me?

Back up. Why were you in court? Felony? Misdamenor? Lude conduct? Shoplifting? Impersonating a police officer? Solicitation? I could go on and on.....

Um...you do know I'm a lawyer, right?

Motorcycles are just sexy, aren't they?

Yeah. And a certain FBI agent undercover as a bartender just takes sexy straight off the chart

Thanks for stopping by, Helen!
Love your name and the clever name of your blog!

Terri, Love bikes and have had several nice rides with my foster son before he totalled his.

Cycles and leather, mmmm. At least you have a distraction when you are in the courtroom - these characters will take over bit by bit.

Terri said...

Janet -- thinking of you on a motorcycle just makes me giggle!

Terri said...

Jen -- These characters have taken over. They are totally out of control.

I had a friend in highschool with a motorcycle and he used to give me rides home from school in a skirt, too. LOL

FYI, you should try to increase the font of your blog posts. It comes across quite small and a bit tough to read. Of course, it could alsway be my computer, but I thought I would mention it.

Have a great week!

Thanks, Angela. The font is "normal" and when I tried to correct it to "large" it through the scale of everything else out of whack!

I think it may be more of an issue with the yellow font against the black background.

With the next post, I'll try a larger font and see how that works.
