We tried fostering dogs for a rescue once but we were terrible at it. The problem was that we became attached to the dogs too quickly and we didn’t want to give them back. We had to stop before we ended up with a house overflowing with dogs and a citation from the city.
It turns out that reviewing bikes is not unlike fostering dogs. You take in a particularly good one and you start thinking you wouldn’t mind having it around a little longer. The next thing you know, 3 months have gone by and you’re still riding the bike and you haven’t written the review because writing the review means you have to give back the bike. Eventually, inevitably, the time comes to give it back, but you can’t shake the feeling that it’s your bike now, so you break down and buy it and your house is one step closer to overflowing with bikes.
Like I said, we’re terrible at fostering. The bright side? At least the city doesn’t set a limit on how many bikes you can own.
