Every Bostonian that reads this blog will probably understand the title reference. Or they should, if they consider themselves true Bostonians. Especially when it’s coupled with this:
Yeah I know, I said I wouldn’t make another one. But I owe Jeremy this kind of maddening, eye-straining, muffled-scream inducing embroidery work, mostly because my bike almost bit off his finger a few weeks ago.
Okay, so it didn’t cut it off [it resulted in a puncture-wound-plus-laceration combo, according to Jeremy], but it still weighed on my conscience. I mean, he could have lost his finger over my bike. A bike that, despite how much I love it, really isn’t worthy of fingers!
As I blinked and gaped in shock, Jeremy actually smiled and wished me a good afternoon if he didn’t see me before I left as he stepped outside for a few minutes. Everyone else just went about their business. I felt like I was taking crazy pills…!
When he came back:
Chris: How deep did it go in?
Jeremy: Only a few millimeters.
Chris: That’s what she said.
…Boys [especially in bike shops] will be boys.
