New Wheels

I saw one of these on my way home from work today. When did three-wheeled motorcycles get invented? Where was I? Who buys these things anyway? The driver of the one I saw was a white-haired man who looked like someone who was having a late-life crisis and decided a motorcycle would be just the thing except that his wife worried so much that his life would become separated from limb that they had a huge fight but eventually reached a compromise, with him managing to convince her that this variety of motorcycle would never tip over, thus making it quite safe while still being loads of fun, a superb attention-getter, and much better than taking up sky-diving, wouldn't you say?Very cool.

Katie, that is definitely an interesting sight, but I'm actually writing this comment to point out that your post has a prime example of an extremely long, run-on sentence, containing a great multitude of individual clauses and leaving you quite out of breath by the time you get to the end of it, rather like this one! :)

Anna, I thought the same thing when I read it! :)

Katie, that is rather interesting. Somehow I don't think my dad would go for that over a regular motercycle, however much safer it may be :)

Yeah, well, sometimes I think it's fun to see how long I can make a sentence. Can I claim poetic license or something?
