So, a couple of days ago I went out on my segway again. No falls this time. I brought a friend with me. She biked, I segwayed. We went to the movies to see Harry Potter 5. I'd already seen it, but she hadn't. Anyways, we had a blast. Let me tell you, crossing traffic and segwaying with the traffic when there are no sidewalks can be quite a suicide mission, but we go there alright. I had a few good reactions to my segway. One person yelled out, "Hey, where can you get that thing?" Not thinking, I told her Indianapolis. If I had had more time I would have said glidemarin.com but I kept segwaying on so I didn't slow down to think or to talk to the woman. I talked to an old couple about my segway later on. That was fun. Old people are so cute! I didn't think they would like my segway so much. I supposed the elderly probably didn't like new technology. Well, they liked it, but I don't remember what all we talked about. My friend who was with me remarked about how cool the lock for my segway is. It is made specially for the segway and is very strong. The hard part is finding a bike rack. Considering how many bikers there are around her I'm surprised there aren't more bike racks. Bikers like to smile at me. It's fun because they often give the right of way to me. Some rowdy kids in their pimped up car yelled after me and honked. I think it meant, "Awesome thing you got there," but I couldn't make out what they were saying over their loud music. The midwest is not nearly as conservative as you think. There are boomers everywhere. Anyways, I also got a "cool thing" remark on that trip as well. My only complaint is that the thing that goes over the spare battery for the key and the place where you plug the charger in is broken. It won't stay on. I think the magnets that held it together broke. No worries, though. It doesn't mean the segway won't work.
In other news, I went roller skating with a friend yesterday and had a blast exercising! My segway couldn't take me, though. I had to find a ride.
