I know, I know. You are thinking, “That woman lives the life! Hot husband, 1/3 acre
death trap pond in the back yard, and now Segways????”
But, alas, the Segways are not ours. They belong to the step-father who is visiting for the weekend. He was kind enough to haul them all the way across the country so all the various grand kids he has been visiting on this road trip could play on them. Not that we adult haven’t been playing on them as well.
What can I say? These things are soooooo cool. And I’m thinking maintenance would be easier than for, say, a couple of horses.
Also? Anyone who comes to our cookout on Monday is going to get to ride them! Yep, volleyball and swimming in the backyard and Segways in the front. How cool is that? I’m sure the town will be talking for months.
(Seriously, we’d only had them out front for less than half an hour yesterday before a neighbor from across the street called to ask if we wanted some tomatoes and, by the way, “What are those gadgets you have out there?”).
For those who didn’t get the White and Nerdy reference in yesterday’s post (which, yes, was dangerously close to being password protected because I am. that. paranoid), I give you this link. I wanted to embed the video, but Weird Al has had that disabled. In the event the link doesn’t work, go to You Tube and search under White and Nerdy. Make sure you watch the one posted by alyancovic.
I’m trying to convince McH that we should make our own version of that video this weekend. The kids can be rolling on the Segways while he dances in the background like Donny Osmond. He’s not digging the idea, but I promise to share the video should I actually convince him.
Don’t hold your breath. Unless you like passing out.
And George, if you’re out there, Tewt the Newt says hello.
