Conversation with a friend while watching Valencia Club de Fútbol and drinking a couple of beers.
Friend: You look good. Have you lost weight?
Me: Not really. I’m about the same weight as I’ve been for a while.
Friend: You’ve been fatter.
Me: Thanks, that’s the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me.
In another incident I was riding my bike along the beaches south of town when I passed a pretty cool electric mountain bike. He was going about 22 KPH without pedaling which isn't bad. I wondered why he wasn’t putting in any effort at all as I thought about why people would buy an electric bike. On the way back home I saw the guy taking a cigarette break and my question was answered.
