Things That Can Be Carried On A Bike (#235)...and a quick comment

2 quarts of milk
2 quarts of grape juice
5 bananas
12 apples
A pint of hummus 
A DVD
2 bundles of kindling

Tonight as I was leaving the grocery store and unlocking my bike a mother with her young daughter walked by. The girl couldn't have been more than 4 or 5 years old. I'm used to getting stares and comments on the Mundo as it is rather "different looking"...especially when it's loaded...but I'm not used to getting comments from young children (whose comments are the best because they are truly honest and "unfiltered" by adulthood). Anyhow, I could see the young girl looking at the bike--taking it all in--and then she says, "Mommy, look at that bike, that's a really big bike!" "Yes it is honey," the mother replied, as she smiled at me a little nervously. "Mommy," the young girl continued, "when I grow up I want a bike like that so I can carry all my stuff; I'll be able to carry all my toys on a bike like that."

Now I was the one smiling.

Yes little girl, I hope you do get a bike like this when you grow up...and yes, also, you can carry all your toys on it.    :)
