Other people know I’m 30

I’ve been trying to consolidate my doctor’s appointments when I’m in San Francisco so I can limit my work from home days which always always turn into eat at home days which is bad for my productivity and also my figure. I went for my doctor check in today and my nurse practitioner was a very nice woman who kept apologizing for each part of the awkward routine while I tried to make small talk about sidewalks and bike lanes. It was a terrible bonding experience but nice to get away from the office for an hour. Then suddenly, unprompted, and quite matter of factly, she said Well if you ever want to get pregnant I’d recommend starting your prenatal diet now with 400 mcg of folic acid, 1000IU of vitamin D, and 1,000mcg of B-12. Omg, I thought, is it my gray hair?  She thinks I’m 40. I wanted to tell her that I really just became an adult this year after getting a dishwasher, expensive placements, and free cable television and that I’m still learning to not each too much chocolate after dinner and to put myself to bed on time but instead I nodded and said, Guess it’s good to plan ahead hahaha and she did not laugh so I stopped laughing and instead stared at the inspirational stepping-stone-over-a-river poster on the wall that told me to quit smoking.

I  added the vitamins to the Amazon shopping list which also happens to include this little number because I can’t fit enough groceries in my front basket. This is not a joke. 2 birds? just kidding. Does Dr. Adam even read this?

    The amazon cart should really be turned into a bicycle trailer. also, the man at the bike shop recommended the one-wheeled trailers instead of the side-by-side style as above. Do you have professional thoughts on this? Skis in sidecars ridership numbers would be really useful here.

    I have not heard of these one-wheeled trailers but I am intrigued. I asked our professional bicycle planner at work and he recommended ditching the trailer and instead turning the mercedes into a station wagon via this: http://www.xtracycle.com/

    I don’t know how I feel about that. Sounds like a commitment. I am going to look into the one-wheeled trailer instead.
