But I think the rain and cold is getting to me, or maybe I'm becoming a bitchy Parisian, because I did something mean today. Instead of cycling away our winter blubber during the famous month of May which feels like every other day is an official holiday, we are stuck inside saying, "I don't know? What do you want to do?" whilst stuffing our faces with chocolate and tapping on our laptops looking for a restaurant that is open during the holiday since neither of us bothered to go to the grocery store and now they are all closed.
We were on the metro when a group of twenty something got on and all of them sat down except for one, who did two of the most annoying things you can do on the metro. She leaned against the pole I was holding onto like she was the only person there and had a loud conversation with her friends about a text message, leaning forward and laughing and showing it to them and then leaning back on the pole forcing me to move my hand a number of times so it wouldn't get crushed by her back all the while flicking her hair over her shoulder so it touched my hand. Ick.
So I loosened my grip, let a few strands get caught between my fingers and the pole and then held on tightly. The next time she leaned forward... snap crackle pop. She looked shocked that there was someone else touching her personal private stripper pole and quickly moved closer to her friends which meant their conversation was no longer heard through the entire metro car. I'm not proud, but it's not really my fault. I should have been cruising home through the warm spring air on a bike.
I'm bitter because I haven't been able to ride more than a couple of times since we got our velib passes. The other day I cycled all the way from my friends house in the 17th, and I was feeling super proud of myself because I've never gone that far by myself and then bam! it started hailing. I mean wtf dude? It's almost June.
In other news I did this:
