We decided to go hiking this weekend to enjoy the nice weather. We arrived at the park and saw a bunch of people getting set to mountain bike on the trails – they were all inflating tires and testing out their (I’m sure quite cool) bikes. We noticed them for a moment, but then were totally distracted by the couple with the BOB! For those of you who don’t know what that is, the Bob is a very high end jogging stroller. My husband lusts after it. He entirely forgot about the mountain bikes (though he used to love to ride these trails) to drool over our fellow yuppies with their stroller.
Our only saving grace (our stroller seems pretty expensive to me as well, but doesn’t match the cost of the bob) was our stroller was much lighter – and my husband was much bigger and stronger – so he was able to pick it up and carry it over some of the uneven / rock covered ground when the other couple gave up and turned around. Who needs a Bob when you have this Dad?
