I heart Fifi.
She is my beacon of independence and adventure. With her, I can escape my military life and go off base to explore the shops as my own leisure.
DILEMMA: I'm seeing other Fifi-esque bikes showing up at my dorm and around the base. Different colors, but same style and the owners are adding the the exact same accessories. Thanks to the local COPY CATS, Fifi now looks soooo.......AVERAGE.
Since I'm not one to blend in with the crowd, something had to be done. Something that would make Fifi look uniquely mine, and also be something that others wouldn't want to do to their shiny new bikes.
I decided that Fifi would look amazing covered in STICKERS.
Yes people, stickers. Cool TRAVEL STICKERS to be exact.
So this is what happened today:
I rode Fifi into town to get my hair cut/colored. (Total disaster btw - but that is an entirely different post. I should have known by the lame salon name - HAIR FORCE. Barf). Followed by a delicious lunch of Greek Artichoke Pizza and Coke Light. The mood was right, the weather perfect - this was the day to start the change.
I rode her into the woods for her initial application of stickers. Unfortunately, Fifi was NOT HAVING IT. Her
Even though I had shared beauty day with her, took her out to lunch, hand-picked stickers, AND chose the perfect spot in the woods - this was the thanks I got.
Simply SELFISH. Unbelievable.

|Lovingly Selected Stickers: (Left to Right) Germany, Great Brit and France. Stickers are expensive!|
|Not a bad start, but I'm going to need A LOT MORE!|
Do you have any extra stickers for Fifi????
Afterwards, she seemed lighter and easier to ride. I literally think she was happy and finally understood the intent. We had a great day - look at our adventure pics!
|There were snails on the bike path (yes, the same ones used in escargot).|
|We went through this |
|We even stopped to pick flowers!|
|A fantastic day besides having to endure crap hair. Its so bad....but more to come on that later!|
Do you have any stickers you would like to donate for Fifi?? Yes?? Fantastic - please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
