Nerdy focus

“Sir, do you want to rent a motorbike?”
“No, thank you.”- the autopilot responds! I cross the street, absolutely sure that I did not want it. Not now, not later.

Three seconds go by and a feeble thought pulls me by the sleeve:  “You went through hell to get a motorbike in high school. And you enjoyed so much riding it. Why are you so sure?”

“I have to finish the article!”

“But you did not even notice the thing!??” – said the 17-year-old me, discouraged. “It could have been a prize for finishing the damn article! … you boring nerd!”

We left the conversation hanging and we went on to share a veg-burger.
