A Tandem Phenomonon and the Price of Internal Insurgence

After trying to catch up to a co-ed tandem bike team this morning, to no avail, I realized something: I have never ever seen a co-ed tandem bike with the woman riding in front.

Is this due to weight ratios, or to the male ego?

And, four months after the murder of personal internal opposition (aka my appendix), I finally received the hospital bill. Guess how much it was? I'll give you a hint: I could've had a BMW 1-series instead.

That's right, it apparently costs $30,000 to destroy internal insurgents. I'll bet it costs the American government the same amount to destroy a single internal insurgent. At least Blue Cross helped me out, so I am not currently indebted to China.

Even though the blood-circulating moon boots in my hospital room were cool, I'd rather have a hot tub and a Vegas skyline view for the same price.

And that's today's Word.

(Yes, I've been watching too much Colbert Report lately.)
