Vespa Dream Scoots Away
Been toying with the idea of getting a motorbike license, followed by a motorbike or scooter, preferably a Vespa. A colleague commented the latter would be a chick magnet. What kinda chicks, I retorted.
Did my research, the license would cost me about $600plus, think the bike's available under $1.5K.
Oh yes, public transport's driving me nuts - esp. all the waiting at bus-stops.
After much deliberation, I finally summoned up the courage and asked my folks' opinion.
A curt "NO" came from my mom, followed by a brief lesson in statistics about the proportion of parents who actually consent to their child scooting about dangerously on 2 slim wheels.
