Random WTF Day

Thou asketh and thou receiveth. You wanted me to do more random WTF days. So just remember: you asked for this.

I think my exercise bike is possessed. It keeps turning itself on and beeping at me. It's like Christine, only with fewer wheels and a smaller intimidation factor. Anyone know how to exorcise a bike?

Yeah, that joke was probably too low even for me. But I still wanna know, because my bike really is doing that.

Today, I was thinking about how best friend and I became inseparable. We knew the same people but never really hung out until this one time that we were over at Mutual Friend's house. Mutual Friend found this stack of pictures in his basement, turned bright red, and took them upstairs before we could look at them. Then he left to pick up a pizza. I lasted about two seconds after he left, and then I said, "Those were totally naked pictures, weren't they?"

"They've got to be," said she.

"Yeah."

And we sat there for about two more seconds before we jumped up in unison, raced each other up the stairs, and looked at the pictures. We've been best friends ever since.

But they weren't naked pictues, which is kind of disappointing. Not that I WANT to see my friends naked, just that it would be a much better story that way. Maybe I should just lie next time. What's important to me is that there's someone out there who gets me. Like she didn't think it was weird the year that I bought us both Spice Girl Barbie dolls, wrapped them, and opened mine and pretended it was a big surprise. I wouldn't have had to do it if Santa wasn't such a slacker.

I still have that doll. Although I brushed her hair once, and that was not a good idea. She looks less like Posh Spice and more like Morning After Spice now.

Yep. That's random alright.

Can we all take a moment to appreciate that Stephen King actually DID write a paranormal horror story about an exercise bike?

I wrote a random post once and thought I scared everyone away so I deleted it. I love that you have a WTF Day. It's my favorite.

Sorry about the bike. Maybe it's telling you that it just wants to be friends?

You exercise bike sounds like it wants to go for a walk. My dog randomly whines at me when she wants to go out. Have you considered exercising your exercise bike?

Unplug it.

Larissa said...

LOL - Now if it still beeped at you after you unplugged it...um, yeah...definitely possessed and you should get rid of it immediately.

My printer does the same thing. Scares the bleep out of me when it does it in the middle of the night.

re: exorcising the bike. Have you tried fire and/or (especially "and") a firearm?

Also, I'm picturing Lance Armstrong showing up on your doorstep in all black with the black hat like "the old priest."

"The power of Schwinn COMPELS you!"

Girl with One Eye said...

You crack me up, again. If I email you my address will you send me some of what you take. I think your random brain is fantabulous.

If it means I get to hop on the exercise bike and it starts peddling without my aid, racking up the miles and calories, I'm all for it.

But what I really really want to know is, what were the pictures of??
