This is my latest BBF, my Butt’s Best Friend, and it was not easy fighting my husband every step of the way to welcome her into our family. Sure, every male in our family has a Quad (four huge wheels per person), plus a trailer to tow the little darlings . Yet Techie, squawks over the purchase of one measly wheel. Don’t get me started.
My goal is to take her for a spin for a mere fifteen minutes a day so I will be sure to nail that next unicycle audition. Did you hear that Hollywood? Nail it!
Blanche loves Neil Diamond (just like me) and she wanted to say something. (The reader must now channel playful Muppet-like imagination as Blanche the Talking Unicycle speaks).
Take it away Blanche...
”Uh, hmmm. The road is long, with many winding turns, that leads us to who knows where, who knows where? But I am strong, strong enough to carrrrrry on….Rose ain’t heavy, she’s my brother. ”
Awwwwwh! Thanks, Blanche.
I am off for a cruise. Toodles!
Riding a unicycle is like life. To be successful and enjoy the ride, they both require tremendous balance and focus. I sit up tall, shoulders back and imagine I am holding one of my young boys under each arm. My best-friend-techie-husband’s hand on my seat (hubba, hubba) to guide me, and my two wiener dogs running alongside, looking like double Dumbos. As I train to ride Blanche, my unicycle, in a half-marathon, I think how good God is as the breeze blows my brown hair, a big smile on my face. Come along for a thrilling one-wheel ride while I do my best to maintain balance... but keep an open mind, there is always something new to learn!
