Hide The Nice, Part II

Never drive, carry, or wear nice things as they will be crushed or removed from you.
I read "The Blotter" every week in the "Park Slope Courier." iPod snatching has run amok.

(Fortunately, I am already comfortable with this rule as virtually the same kicked in around the time I joined the ranks of Parents Everywhere. )

So the thinking when Dan bought me a surprise new bike was, "get something not worth stealing."
But I am smitten. I love this new bike. It's gorgeous. It came from a shop on the polluted banks of the Gowanus Canal and outweighs me. It's painted with house paint. Sigh.
