Today's starter: one man, one dog, one motorcycle.
I happened to glance out the front window while we were putting dinner together and I saw the man across the street with his little, mid-shin high dog walking to his motorcycle. My first thought when I saw this, and I'm not making this up at all, was simply: this has the potential to be awesome.
I had to go back in the kitchen to check on the chicken, but came hurrying back as soon as I could. I looked down to see the dog being secured in the basket on the back of the motorcycle by the now leather jacket clad man.
"Hell yes," I said to myself.
Then he stepped aside to grab his helmet from the handlebars to reveal that his dog was wearing white rimmed, black bike goggles. I about died.
I stood there watching until the motorcycle roared to life and he pulled away from the curb, the dog on the back looking side to side with this... just utterly calm expression. It was like he was thinking, "this could not be more normal."
This totally made my night and I had to share.
