the BMX guy
I was at my favorite Indian restaurant today and I saw a girl from high school. I stopped and said "hi" and the girl across from her, whom I didn't recognize, asked my name. I told her and she made the rocking-the-handlebars-back-and-forth-pretending to ride a bike thing and said "yeah, you were the BMX guy". I said "I have a BMX bike in my van right now". Girl #1 said "really?" and I said "yes...good seeing you" and walked back to my sacred cow vegetarian plate. Felt like 10th grade again. Not really in a good way. But kind of. I take pride in still being the "BMX guy". Number 22 is yours truly. Plainwell BMX, sophmore year. BMX got you no where with girls back then. Not sure it does now?
