We took the ferry to Nantucket yesterday and rented two tandems. I planned what I thought was a short bike ride, but everyone else thought 12 miles was too much. I said if they didn't like what I planned they needed to get involved in the planning next time instead of leaving it to me.
Today is my 50th birthday. It isn't that I mind getting older--so far it has been a good thing--but being celebrated just makes me feel bad.
