Once upon a time there was a girl who liked to ride her bike. She rode and she rode her bike and in between riding her bike she raced her bike. After 8.5 months of riding and racing her bike, the girl was slowly starting to drown. Thinking she was a good swimmer, the girl kept riding and racing her bike.
The water was getting deeper and deeper. The girl, who doesn't like water to begin with, was not swimming well and starting to drown at a rapid rate. Her breathing became labored and heavy. Her body got water logged and slow. She was slowly dying. Before full darkness took her over, the girl realized she could "pull the plug" and all the water would drain out.
So, yesterday, the girl pulled the plug and today she feels much better. She can now look forward to the 2010 bike ride and race season with excitement and not feel stuck in the water of 2009.
