Celebrity can be fickle

Today as I entered my building after dismounting my Segway, the unusually attractive receptionist had her mouth open.

Her: Wow. You are officially the coolest person ever.
Me: What?
Her: You. I'd never seen one of those things before, and now I have. So, as far as I know, you're the coolest person in the world.
Me: Oh, thanks.
Her: You ride that every day?
Me: Yeah. I got this instead of a car because I only live a mile to the north.
Her: Oh, and now I hate you. That didn't take long.

She must live in Seattle. Sucker.

Steven and I are going to be living at Redmond Trails, which is about a mile east of the campus. I'm hoping to ride my bike to work (not quite as exciting as a Segway) because the traffic was terrible last summer and I only lived 3 miles away.

I kind of wanted to stop reading after "had her mouth open"
