Body Parts For Sale

I am so thrilled about the nice weather lately. It has actually motivated me to get out and garden, walk, and ride. There is a problem with the riding though. My bike only has one seat. And I have two kids. So when I saw a picture of this:



I thought, "Man does that little boy have an outdated hair cut!" But THEN I thought, "HOW CUTE IS THAT BIKE???" In light blue!?! I thought I had died and gone to heaven. It's so perfect for a mom with two small kids who always want to ride the bike with her but can't unless they plan on doing one of those Bernstien Bears type arrangements. And I could actually win it! (Have you had enough of me talking about contests yet? Sorry. I guess it's that giveaway time of year. Not Christmas. That OTHER giveaway time of year.) Fortunately, you don't have to do anything to help me. I've helped myself just by linking to the site from my blog. Right HERE.

Madsen Cycles Cargo Bikes

Still, feel free to click over and see this gorgeous bike for yourself. Or even enter the contest yourself, if you feel you must try to steal my dreams.

I think it's only fair that you know one thing about me and this bike, though. If I win, you will never see me riding a bike in a skirt and dress shoes. I don't live in The Sound Of Music, you know. If that's what you're after, you better just win the bike yourself. But other than that, this WILL be me. Even if I have to sell my body to get one. Ummmm....maybe not my whole body. Just part. Like a lung. Or a kidney. Anyone in the market for a kidney?

Mia, thanks for linking me to this contest at your friend's blog. If I win this bike, I will give you a free ride in the bucket part of this bike. Aren't I so generous?

Do you think I could get all six of my kids in there?

I would totally wear a skirt. And no underwear.

SO said...

Isn't her outfit insane?? And that kid needs a new cut, definitely . I also wonder how heavy the actual bike and that basket is. Oh and why does no one have a helmet on??

I thought my cute pink beach cruiser was cool. But I do think this bike tops it! I want one!!!!

Shawn said...

Heh, heh. Love what Jennie said!

I actually am trying to win this also----so don't you dare take it away from me!!

Devri said...

you crack me up... I'll take a heart please!!

Couldn't you just put one kid in a seat on the back of your present bike, and put another seat over the front fender? Or in a front basket? That's how my Daddy used to give me and Mike rides, except no seats, just fenders and handlebars. (Oh yeah, Berenstein Bears.) (and Mom on the crossbar holding the baby. HONEST!)

Say! I just saw one of those little yellow bike trailers at D.I. that holds two kids. That would be a lot easier and cheaper, and not even cost you a kidney.

I will not spoil your fun.

Sara said...

Sorry, but i;m gonna have to sign up for this, it's too cute to pass up.

I am an equal opportunity clicker! I went over from your blog too. I really hope someone I know wins. It is a funky cool bike.

How stable is that thing? What if your kids (like most) don't sit still? Does it have seat belts? I'd be afraid that whoever is in the bucket behind my butt would be moving so much, I'd lose balance and we'd crash into a truck full of manure.

I would like some new kidneys, though.
