Lovely Awkward: A Year of Wine, Romance and Life Among the French

Oh, Mr. Postman...

I could soon be just like you, riding a little 125cc scooter up and down our winding roads up to our home in the mountains. I looked at a few scooters both yesterday and today. Some were just like yours, only not yellow. (No offence, but I drove a certain newspaper's yellow cars for years. So, now I feel that every yellow thing with a motor is some sort of company vehicle -- where I could suddenly find the gas tank empty and a crumpled Tim Horton's bag under the seat.)

But, I may still decide to get one of these little zipsters. They're light. Almost like plumped up bicycles. And I bet you can still hold them up while you lean over to put letters in mail slots without letting them drop so you think you've smashed your ankle.

This is it. My colours are not quite as cool, but as I mentioned above, it's not yellow.

ps. I'm thinking of avoiding this whole commitment question by buying this one on my own. Ugh. I don't want to make money (OR trying to get this on to a plane back to Canada) an issue. My plan is to pay, but hope the scooter continues to be parked in the Professor's garage until it's ready for resale.
