Yesterday, I logged onto MSN and saw that my buddy, Pete, was online. Now Pete and I haven’t seen each other since our drunken varsity days, so this was a bit of a catch up conversation…
Mark: Yo dude, howz it hanging?
Pete: Mr missed-the-mark, I’m good n u, homey?
Mark: Lol. I’m gr8 bud, just doing some work…blergh!
Pete: Awesome man, u still @ that accounting firm?
Mark: Yup, yup…and u?
Pete: Still studying, boet. Doing my Masters now…
Pete: Where you hiding these days? We never c u @ the pub anymore…
Mark: I’m hectic into mountain biking. Training. Riding. It’s really cool and keeps you fit.
Pete: Mountain biking? So you’ve been riding around delivering newspapers like a paper boy lol
Mark: No man, MTB not normal cycling. We do dirt trails out in nature, my friend.
Pete: Eish! That sounds um…boring…zzz…
Mark: Voetsek. U prob still benchpressing potato bags to get fit!
Mark: Don’t tune me, china. I’m fit and staunch now hehe
Pete: So when am I gonna be seeing you on tv riding the tour de france?
Mark: That’s road cycling! Not MTB!
Pete: Yeah, yeah, whatever Mr Contador!
Mark: *Expletitive* I’m not into road cycling ARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!
Pete: No need 2 get upset. I’ll buy you training wheels for ur birthday!
Mark is now offline.
Please excuse the atrocious IM spelling, but this is an important issue I wish to address once again – MTB is not the same as road cycling ARRRRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHH! Thank you, enjoy your day.
