Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I hadn't scheduled it yet but wanted Friday.
Friday at 9:15 is what I got. I wrote it as a document for my use not for your critique. I might just iron those 2 shirts right now to spite you.

It's 10:20 and this game is in the top of the 5th. WTF is MLB doing with 8:15 start times? No one on the east coast is going to see the end of this game.
SMFH

I've got shirts to iron.

Have you considered the dry cleaner? Relatively inexpensive option, especially now.

I was a regular patron of our local dry cleaner back in the 90s. Wool suits, silk ties, cotton shirts.

After 15 hours it’s not As bad as #2, but I sure as hell don’t feel like getting on the bike and riding to work with 16 kts on the nose. Let’s see what a gram of APAP does.

I bought my groupset on eBay. Makes me technically 2nd owner. A better question is why they aren't doing in good faith when they know they screwed the pooch.
. Like I said. My next bike will be Shimano.
