tandem skitch up Steiner

After work today I had to ride up Steiner. Blondie said he'd come along. As he turned onto Steiner from Fillmore I heard him yell "card board pirates, cardboard pirates!". (The pirates are the dudes that stop by the shop in trucks, top heavy with their catch, to pick up bike boxes and other cardboard we've left in front, playing their part in the retail eco-system. )

Instinctively I looked back towards the shop expecting to see some after-hours piracy but he kept yelling. When I looked ahead I saw him sprinting up to one of their vast ships.

Long story short, we both ended up epicly skitching all the way up Steiner hanging onto the same cardboard truck. You should have seen it. I thought about taking a picture, but didn't want to die.

Q: What did the pirate say when asked by the bartender, "why do you have a steering wheel in your pants"?

A: "Yaaar, it's drivin me nuts!"
