Shiny new bike is shiny: Needs a name though. Very sleek,… - almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea

Shiny new bike is shiny:



Needs a name though. Very sleek, elegant, curvy yet strong.


And, as you asked nicely, the amusing[1] story.

I'd picked the Beans up from school, and was my usual ridiculously excited self at the prospect of teh newShiny, so asked if they'd mind popping out to Halfords to get my new bike.

Nah, said EB. I'm tired.

LB was up for it, but EB wouldn't budge on the issue. Too tired.

So, I resorted to whining and whingeing[3]. Oh go on I whined. It won't take long. Oh, pleeeeeeease

EB gave me a Look, of Molly-esque proportions[4]

Dad, whinging only works for us because you're soft. And I'm not. We're not going.


BOOYAH. EB: 1, YT: 0

Feel free to indicate how amusing[731] you find this in the comments below. Along with a good name for my shiny new bike.

*licks bike*





[1] to me, anyway[2]
[2] YMMV
[3] whingeing or whinging? Neither look right to me.
[4] regular readers will know what I mean. Irregular readers really ought to keep up
[731]or not

Bribe them, that's how I get reluctant kids to go to places ...

tried that, they weren't having it.

Got them there eventually, as you can see. :-)

I had a "fun" time after school yesterday. Kate wanted to go to WHSmiths to get the new Dr Who comic that she'd save up for. Holly didn't.

FIGHT time! :(

:-D

Attabean!

As for the bike, she looks like a Hilary to me. Don't know why.

Not sold on Hilary. Agatha, perhaps.

I think that's hilarious XD Go EB! Hee, Molly-esque proportions.

Your bike should be named after a mech, maybe. I'm bad at names, though XD Unit 01? Deathscythe? Epyon? Wing Gundam? Sandrock? Shenlong? Um, what's Trowa's Gundam... Strongarms. Caitirin was of vital help with remembering the names XD

I'm not familiar with the mech names. :-)
elaby From: elaby Date: June 9th, 2011 06:58 pm (UTC) (linky)
Heh, they're from Gundam Wing, except Unit 01 which is from Eva. *dork*

I would have said the answer would be "car, now", and go from there.

yeah, tried that. EB is getting pretty big (and stubborn)

Hmmm the force is strong in Master Bean. Also, a boy to tired to go to Halfords? Surely some mistake!

he's pretty beat. Too many late nights!

That's a sweet ride.

I'm deeply in love with it already. :-)
