John Scalzi, in his blog By the Way which has reached the advanced (for Blogs) age of four, asks us to post a picture from 2003.
Here's mine. Me on my first scooter, a "City Bug".
The City Bug was mobile and fast. Too fast I figured, for if I bumped something going that fast I was sure to be injured. It had a "stool" for a seat, and you had to hang on for dear life. It had no reverse.
I replaced it with a "real" sit-down scooter and gave it to the old folks home. The maintenance man used it for a while scooting from job to job, but now it mostly sits in the card room, waiting to be scooted, looking forlorn.
