Two Parts of a Perfect Moment


Today’s Perfect Moment comes in two parts.

The first is seeing my new student role his foldable bike into my classroom. As anyone who reads this blog knows, I love bicycles and anything to do with bicycles.  Seeing a decent looking folding bike out and about is awesome.

He was kind enough to show it to me, and he was even willing to unfold the whole thing. I told him it was unnecessary.  I liked the way it looked folded up.  I am not sure that it is something I would buy for myself, but it looked like a great piece of technology.

The other Perfect Moment came when I was waiting for my bus. In the afternoon the bus gets rather warm on the left side.  Most people opt to sit on the right side of the bus.  Unfortunately, most of the seats on the right side are perpendicular to the seats facing forward.  They are pointed towards the window and are rather uncomfortable owing to their seat height.  There are only 4 seats pointed forward on the right side of the bus.  These are near the front.

I tried to get to the door closest to one of these seats, but a bunch of ladies beat me to it. So, I opted for the back and was pretty much resigned to feeling hot and sweaty.  I was pretty sure that I was going to fall asleep on the bus and miss my stop.  In positioning myself that way, I was able to take advantage of the bus arriving early and letting people board at a different place–to which I was standing closest.  I got the window seat on the right side and felt very happy.

    I’ve yet to test ride a folding bike I liked (I think they’ve all been either a Dahon or Tern, never a Brompton).

    Like ebikes, I get their appeal but they’re not for me.
