Appearances

Every morning, weather permitting,
she peddles her cruiser bike down
the steep hill and past his house
on the way somewhere.

Every evening, regardless of the
weather, she peddles her cruiser
bike past his house and up the
steep hill on her way home.

He sits at this desk and wonders
how a middle-aged approaching
elderly person has the strength
to get up that steep hill, at any
time let alone, day in and day out.

Then he saw her riding in town
and mentioned her and her
admirable feat to his comp-
anion who looked up at the
cyclist and said, “Oh, didn’t
you see the auxiliary, electric
motor?”
