As a youngster, I happened to aquire a unicycle and taught myself to ride it. I got pretty good over the years, but more recently I allowed my riding to lapse, after wearing out the last one.
The other day I was in the local bike shop, and there was a very nice black unicycle on display. Unlike those from my youth, this one was designed like professional models and was reasonably priced as well, so the temptation was too great to resist.
Alas, it seems that certain parts of my anatomy have forgotten the lessons they learned earlier, and the complaints have been deafening, IYKWIM. So when you see some middle aged guy balancing on one wheel, know that while it may look cool, that smile is really a grimace.
It is not better to look good than to feel good! Trust me, or better yet, truss me!
