The Slice

Let’s go to the transcript

Here's an actual conversation I had with another cyclist this afternoon as we waited for a light in downtown. We were right next to the Toyota dealership. This other guy, who looked to be in his 40s, started by complimenting the white, cat-shaped horn I have on my handlebar.

Other guy: "My daughter has one just like it."

Me: "Thanks. With the bike being black and all, I wanted something that showed I wasn't trying to be badass or anything."

Other guy: "Are you saying my daughter is not a badass?"

Me: "I wouldn't want to say before meeting her."
