A Karl Moment

A True Karl Moment (as told by John Linger)

Tim, Felicia, John and I are once again beginning our training for the MS150 from Houston to Austin in April. John has been having serious hip issues and, even though he has registered, he wasn't sure he will be able to ride. We had our first training ride on Saturday and the planned route was 28 miles (ride 14 miles out, eat breakfast at a Mexican restaurant, and ride 14 miles back.)

We left the parking and had ridden approximately one mile when John told me his hip was bothering him and he didn’t believe he would be able to handle the route. So, he decided to turn around, return to the truck, and act as our SAG driver for the ride. He followed the pack (approximately 15 of us) all the way to the restaurant and, while we were eating breakfast, Tim, Felicia and I decided we were going to ride only 20 miles. (Tim and Felicia haven’t ridden since last May and I haven’t ridden since October.)

We finished breakfast, went outside to get on our bikes, and Felicia announced that she is quitting – 14 miles is enough for her – and she doesn’t want to be tired the rest of the day. Tim and I look at each other and agree to complete the 20 miles. We mount our bikes and, as we are pulling out of the parking lot, John announces, instead of following us, he and Felicia are going to drive down the road to the Exxon gas station. He estimates that will be the distance of our 20-mile ride.

Tim is riding faster than I and he arrives at the gas station first. As he arrives at the gas station, John and Felicia are waiting outside the truck. As Tim approaches, he looks down at his computer and says, “I’ve gone 19.8 miles. I’m just going to ride up and back until I reach 20 miles.”

About a minute later, I am now approaching the gas station. I see John and Felicia waiting outside the truck and notice that Tim has ridden past them. I look down at my computer and it registers 19.8. As I pass the truck, I say, “I’ve ridden 19.8 miles. I want to ride 20….I’m going to keep going. Please pick me up in a minute.”

Of course, I didn’t know Tim had just said the same thing. John shared this little tidbit with me last night at dinner and laughed about the Karl Moment he and Felicia shared.

this is a true karl moment...we are too connected to each other.

I don't think it is ESP as much predictable Karl obstinancy. There are three things one can always count on from a Karl:
1)sense of humor
2)obstinancy
3)Grammar corrections

Speaking of of which... Kathleen, what is with the mixed verb tenses?
;-)

BTW,
I wouldn't have committed #3 if I weren't trying to show my #1.

Posted by: GodDaughter on January 24, 2006 03:19 PM

I wrote it, rewrote it in a hurry, read it and realized I had mixed verb tenses, but didn't have time to correct. So, I was face with either deleting it or posting. Otherwise, it would have gone by the wayside.....so, you must forgive the weakness of this piece.

Posted by: Kathleen on January 24, 2006 06:16 PM

As I hope you will forgive the correction. Though I have karl blood, I hate it when we do that. It's so rude. I usually try to limit my corrections to silent admonishments. (I must still correct it in my head at least.)

However, I did think it was a bit funny that I noticed this and felt compelled to say it correctly for my own benefit and so wanted to share. In the end the joke gene colluded with the correction gene and the manners gene pleaded no contest.

that is funny, Meredith...the last sentence of your most recent comment.

Posted by: rita on January 25, 2006 06:37 PM

What I think is a Karl moment:

1. The Caring
2. The Thinking of Each Other
3. The Love that is shown all the time for each
other.

That is Karl Moment and I hope it coninues for a long time...I think it will. It has dwindled down to the grandchildren.

The sex addict is uncertain getting what he needs from real people.

He is hoping that sex will do this for him, and when it doesn't, he moves on. The motive is believed of being inherited since several adult men which deal with this,

Years ago when so many anglers used milk protein baits these were mostly used
in small amounts because they normally worked very
fast and effectively compared to other baits of the time and it
was just not necessary to pile in loads and loads of bait to
catch loads of big fish. Solar panels work best when they are in a spot, which has
constant exposure to the sun throughout the year. Trauma is stored in the body and nervous system, which you feel strongly at certain times.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
