when i pedal it rains green

a couple of years ago j. and i were on a sunday bike ride. he was ahead of me as we went around a bend and little flash of green caught my eye.

i turned around and went back. what was laying in the middle of the street? a c-note. a bill. a benjamin. cold. hard. cash. i looked around for ashton kutcher, but when i didn't see him or any fishing line attached to the bill, i took the money and rode.

like a good girl i made sure it wasn't counterfeit before i tried to use it.

this morning i was on my way home from a little spin. waiting at the "do not turn right on red" sign ... like the good cyclist i am (or rather, the cyclist that learned a VERY expensive lesson about not obeying traffic laws ... cough, cough, $200+ ticket for not coming to a complete stop at a stop sign) and what do i see at my feet?

this time a double sawbuck. $20. MORE GREEN!

at this rate i'm earning about $60 a year to ride my bike.

does this mean i'm now a sponsored athlete?

Sah-weet! At the very least, you are being paid to have some good post-ride snacks!

That's awesome! I've heard of people finding all sorts of cool things on their rides, but I never seem to find anything good on mine! :)

Once I found a dollar when I was running around the Brentwood country club. I picked it up, and two junior high kids jumped out of the bushes. I should've kept it.
