People’s reaction to what we are doing varies from excited to horrified and some of the comments we get can be very amusing. This one currently holds the position of funniest ever. I went to help someone with their new computer and as we finished the job the conversation went like this:
Jim: I’ll give you a ring if I need any more help.
Me: Don’t forget we are going away for six months at the end of April so it will have to be before then.
Jim: Oh yes, Bob mentioned you were going cycling where is it you are going?
Me: We are going to cycle around the coast of Britain.
Jim: Oh great, how far is that then?
Me: About five thousand miles.
Jim: Will you be taking your own sandwiches?
Thanks Jim, I will be giggling about that every time we eat a sandwich on our journey.
