bike-guy, you tell the best stories!  this is awesome.  
i love the doughnuts, the random mentions of pizza hut and trees in the fog.  
nothing to crit, it all rolled perfectly.

I'm Polish, byk in Polish means bull, although once I rode my bicycle from Poland to Spain, that's the trump card of my life

just so you know, i addressed you as bike-guy due to your 'prayer poems,' (3 and 5).
but anyway, now i guess i will call you bull.  ??
maybe not.  you are an interesting writer.  i like your work.
