SEGWAY

My profile on the Segway!
NO HANDS...how does he do it?
And of course, I had to pose with my classic thumbs ups!


Susie, eat your heart out. Vespas are cool, but Segways are the walking of the future. Just kidding. Last night after I left Robyn's house (where she graciously fed me dinner since I have no food after my trip) I decided that instead of going home for ward prayer I'd go to my friend Marianne's house. Her parents live in Sandy, and there were three things that lured me there. One, they tivo'd the office season finale that I missed, and I got to watch it with them. Two, they had cake (I didn't know until I got there). Three, they have a Segway! Marianne would also add that four they have a baby (her nephew), but as Eric her brother pointed out, boys don't really care as much about other people's babies as girls do... Anyway, after the office and the cake, Marianne and I went outside and played with the Segway. I rode it around the block, I went forward and backward, I went in circles, I rode it sitting, and finally we rode it with two people at a time. We rode it over to a park where we did laps. I really wish that there had been people in their backyards as we made our way over to the park, 'cause it would have looked really weird seeing us gliding along smoothly and effortlessly...kind of witchy! I have now decided that I NEED a Segway. I don't know how or when, but someday I will have a Segway. It's electric, so if I plugged it in at home my roommates would pay for a 3/4 of its gas, without ever realizing...it's the perfect scam! I've since learned that they also have off-roading Segways made perfectly for the trail or the golf course. Now they just need to make them freeway safe, and they'll be set!

Oh my gosh...where did you come from?! I would have loved seeing the two of you gliding along on the Segway! Sounds like fun! Didn't the security guards in the Brea Mall ride on those?

P.S. Love your Honduran thumbs up! We'll get a picture of you and Dad together with your thumbs up and him flashing the peach sign!

I just bet that this "Segway" will be a big seller. Can't you just see grandpa and me riding or gliding along to Church. I know that that our neighbors would really think we had lost our last "shingle". How fun is that. As your mom said "where did you come from" we are all so conservative. But what fun!!!!

Good call on catching up on the office. I still haven't seen the finale. The Segway seems fun and the fact that its electric is sweet. maybe I should get one... Being the walker that I am:)

That's so funny...you should have rode it to my house so I could have seen you gliding along on the sidewalk!

Oh my gosh! I am so jealous! I have always wanted to ride one. It must have been just peachy! By the way, what is yours and dads "peach" sign.
