cyclotexting, basketball

cyclotexting is a new word that i made up after i heard this story

pedexting is where people text while walking
philadelphia as an april fools joke opened a pedexting lane on
one of its sidewalks and will leave it there for a while
theres the video of the lady pedexting into the water fountain and the
story of the lady that pedexted off the wharf into the water

well now there is
cyclotexting surely not this
who would text while riding a bicycle
lance wouldnt do that

well my wet suitcase sisterinlaw would
there is always an adventure or story when they come to visit
last time it was the wet suitcase story
she still wont let me and her poor husband live that one down
she even didnt read my blog for weeks because of the blog i
wrote about madonnas half time show
still didnt like it and she still liked it

so my sisterinlaw the wet suitcase one and her husband were on
a bicycle ride (she didnt have a helmet on so theres your sign there)
she was riding in a rural like area and decided she would
text her friend while bicycling and wish her a happy birthday
bad bad bad mistake

as she was passing this family all by the themself in a park enjoying
their nice picnic lunch she started coasting and began texting her
as she did her foot slid off the pedal into the spokes of the
front wheel
if youve ever done that before you know what happened next
its like slamming the brakes on your car
you stop fast
her foot was stuck
it hurt real bad
somehow her friend was on the phone and could hear it all
she thought my wet suitcase now cyclotexting sisterinlaw was

her foot had to be extracted from the front wheel by her poor
husband and the guy who was eating the picnic lunch with his

her foot began to swell and instantly looked like as she described
it it would explode it was so big

her husband jumped on his bike to ride the two miles to their house
to get the car so he could come back and pick her up
when he got there she had the keys
he had to ride back and get the keys

oh honey my foot is going to just explode

he finally got the car and brought her home

the poor family who was doing the picnic packed up and went home

luckily her son was with a friend whose dad was a foot specialist
no broken bones were present just a bad crush injury

please read this story and dont cyclotext
(should be called psychotexting)

im sure no one else has ever done this before
so i googled images of texting while bicycling
and yep
there are a lot of those people out there

kentucky won
kansas tried to come back but couldnt catch up
kentucky is one and done
they will have to reload again next year
now for the nba playoffs next

  1. I actually saw someone texting while riding a motorbike, and yes, no helmet :)

  2. I see little kids on their way to school doing this every day...... most do not have helmets. Drives me crazy.
