my new wheels

A week ago last Friday, I got a scooter. It rocks.


It's the Xooter MG (pronounced "zootur emgee"). I love it, I've ridden it to work and back home several times. It's a lot of fun and better exercise than sitting on the subway.

The first morning out, though, I learned an important lessen about crosswalks and curb cuts, when I got to meet a sidewalk up close and personal. Luckily, my injuries were minor and did not require medical attention. After that, I got a helmet. It's a Bell helmet and it kind of matches the xootr, so I don't feel that dorky.

So, what should I name my little xootr? Some ideas: Professor X, Xippy, Spot, ... help me out here!
