Sometimes I’m Really Dumb

While out for a casual bike ride around South Minneapolis neighborhoods today, I heard a young girl yelling from the back of a bike coming toward me. She was on one of those 3rd wheel trailers attached to her mom’s bike. As I got closer, I could make out what she was saying while pointing at me:

“That is a very dumb person!”

Yep, I was being called dumb by a random girl on a bike. Why? Her mom’s response to her daughter explained it:

“That’s right, honey. He should be wearing a helmet.”

I thought about circling around to tell the girl that she’s right, and I actually ordered a new one on Amazon last week, but instead biked home in shame after being called out the biking do-gooder.
