So i kitted up and departed. Bearsden, Drymen, Balmaha, Rowerdennan, The West Highland Way, Inversnaid Hotel, Loch Katrine Forest, Aferfoyle, Strathblane, Home.
I stopped at Aberfoyle to refuel. The man behind the counter had too much gold jewelry and very long fingernails.
me: "How's it going?"
him: "Good.... Well, I was good on Friday..."
my internal monologue: oh dear lord ... (cringe!)
him: "I read the obituary on Friday and i wasn't in it. So i knew it was a good day on friday."
me: (nervous laugh) "ah."
my internal monologue: just smile and nod... (i nod. and smile)
me: "Cheers very much. I'll be off" (I teeter out as quickly as my road cleats allow)
I bought a bottle of lucozade and packet of rainbow coloured popcorn, which came to the grand total of 99p.
There's not much point to this, but it certainly proves, we are indeed, very efficient engines. Factory standard, I can travel around about 80miles on less than a pound. Just magine how far i could go on 99p with a bit more fine tuning...
Oh yeah, and I didn't even eat the popcorn :-)
