Safety is the new awesome

Last Saturday Steve bought a new scooter. The exact same scooter my roommate Bex owns. Now they are in an exclusive scooter gang together. I'm the mascot of the gang because I just ride on the back.

The main pro of Steve having this scooter is that it opens up so many "hard to get to via public transit" or "hard to park" neighborhoods that we never frequent because it's too difficult. The main con of Steve having this scooter is safety. What happens if there is some crazy driver that isn't paying attention? Anyway, to make myself feel better and to congratulate Steve on his purchase I decided to buy us helmets.

    i am so glad that steve finally succumbed. i was sick of being in the Death Scab for Scootie scooter gang all by myself.

    Bets, that necklace you are wearing in the picture looks like a marajawanna leaf tattoo. You should get one. It would look cool on you.

    I would by a scooter just to be in a gang called the "Death Scab for Scootie gang". That's pretty clever Becca.

    Dear Courtney,
    If you enlarge said picture you'll see that my necklace is the exact opposite of a marajuana leaf. It's a beautiful dove of peace.
    Love,
    Betsy

    Dear The New Awesome.

    I just wanted to say thank you for providing me with daily entertainment! I used to think it was ridiculous to read someone’s blog I didn’t even know and come to think of it, it is still kind of ridiculous to read someone’s blog I don’t know. But lets be honest you guys are funny.

    Oh, I am friends with rob and cassian and am one of the girls who sent in a headstands for peace picture from heathercove and the sweetbros.

    the best part about our helmets is that no matter how hot and heavy you're breathing in there, they don't fog up.

    if we can't say Erotic on our blog, bets, you probably can't talk about getting hot and heavy on the scooter with steve.

    court - get a scooter and you are in! we will probably get Death Scab tattoos, right next to our marajawanna ones
