It's good to be a girl!

cycling in a skirt
Today is really spring. The birds are singing and the air feels warm. It was time to pull out a skirt. It was a delight to ride into work, the godets of my skirt fluttering around me.

My fellow-cyclist Dutch colleague complimented me on my skirt and remarked "Isn't it interesting how the cars are nicer to you when you wear a skirt? It's true in the Netherlands too."

I hadn't thought of it but yes, the cars were more accommodating today. I'm going to wear a skirt while cycling more often! It's good to be a girl.
