After I posted a picture of a new desk chair Wes bought me yesterday, my brother called me and insisted that we should start a blog all about the crazy things Wes carries home on his Vespa. It got me laughing, b/c what I once thought as ridiculously insane has sort of become the norm here.
We used to have a cheap little car here in Brooklyn, but after having it towed b/c of street cleaning, we found out that it was going to cost us $700 to get it back. We decided it was more than the car was worth & said goodbye (even though a weeks worth of laundry was in the back!). Since then, Wes uses his Vespa for everything. Rain, snow, sleet, he almost always refuses to use public transportation.
Anyway, so not only does he ride it everywhere, he also uses it to carry EVERYTHING. And I mean everything from a months worth of groceries from Costco, to 10 garbage bags full of Salvation Army donations (seriously), to even a 6ft work table (not kidding here).
So I thought I’d share a few snapshots of Wes + Vespa’s greatest hits..
A trip to Costco, complete w/ 40 lbs of cat litter
new Knoll chair he brought home for me yesterday
old school chairs (one trip), Wes’ work chair (one trip)
Brought this 32″ screen TV home from a store in Queens, for Christ’s sake!
The Grandaddy of all Vespa carries: the 6 ft table!
I didn’t witness this one, but our friend Michelle did, and made a comic about it
I’ll try to get a photo of him in action from now on.. I think you’ll all be impressed!
