Who taught you how to ride a bike?
Ahhh, a question for the ages. You see, I never learned to ride one. I can ride stationary bikes just fine, but not a real one. But not for lack of trying, mind you.
My dad patiently tried for years to teach me, bless his heart. I even succeeded for a few seconds before falling down for the thousandth time and refusing to get back on. My cousin tried to teach me before I went away to college, and a few ex-boyfriends have tried to teach me to ride one, too. Alas, I’ve just accepted the fact that it’s not going to happen. Besides, I can drive wherever I need to go now – it’s not like I’m going to ride my bike to my friend’s house anymore.
Come to think of it, it’s not like my friends ever lived within bike-riding distance, so I probably just lacked motivation.
