****: Bhudeeka - get on that bike of yours and try a little harder, will you? You can't allow these horrible people from everywhere else come into to you little corner of utopian perfection and set up meth labs all over the shop!

Ah @|_|@\, how you do unlock such painful memories of my spurned attempts at wooing Bhudeeka.

Did you really have to mention her name and the word ‘bike’ in the same sentence? You know how badly I took it when all my attempts to entice her out on the tandem failed so miserably.

All those hours welding the two Carrera Subways together to make the ultimate passion contraption and for what? Total Rejection!

Tis a cruel enough world without you having to remind me thank you very much!.
