    "Once you learn, you will never forget."

    by ,

    1. "Wait, you NEVER learned how?"

    No. I totally learned how and just forgot. OF COURSE I NEVER LEARNED HOW. IF I HAD, I COULD RIDE A BIKE.

    2. "What?! You never had a bike when you were a kid?"

    No. I couldn't be trusted with a bike.

    3. "Your parents never tried to teach you?"

    What makes you think my parents know how to ride a bike? :(

    4. "Not even with training wheels?"

    Why don't you believe me?!

    5. "But weren't you sad when you saw your friends biking and all you could do was watch?"

    No. I was a very patient child.

    6. "Don't you want to learn now?"

    Don't you want to learn how to leave me alone?

    7. "It's hard to explain. You just have to climb on and start pedaling."

    Jeez, how did I not think of that before?

    8. "Believe me. If you try it once, you'll get the hang of it."


    9. "Falling is totally normal! You just have to get up and keep going."
