Unicycling Husband



What do you do when you are having a mid-life crisis but can't afford a Harley Davidson?  You buy a unicycle of course.

Symon has always had a secret dream to learn how to ride a unicycle.  A few years ago a young girl next door had one and Symon used to beg her for turns.  He's the sort of guy that won't give up on something until he can do it (except when it comes to sewing).

After seeing a few guys riding them at our youth church, he became adamant that it was something he just had to master.  He found a cheap one, and after a few alterations (to make it ridable for someone over 6ft), his dream was on it's way to becoming true.

Apparently it takes a few months to learn how to ride a unicycle... and of course Symon was super proud today that he is getting the hang of riding it after less than one day of trying.

And if you're wondering what's with the 'thumbs up' pose... I have no idea.

He wanted me to show you a video of him riding it... show off!  (haha)

  7. It's certainly a lot cheaper than a Harley.

  11. Yes, we were definitely created to be friends in real life! We can get together, hang out and watch our hobby-ridden hubbies ride their unicycles around the yard while we cheer them on, sipping tea and giggling at them:)They'd LOVE it!
