Cyclist: I Saw You

I had to make sure that your efforts were also known.  I saw you pedaling down the street with a Christmas tree, a 7 foot Douglas Fir on...not your trailer, not your Xtracycle, but...on your BACK.  Strapped to your back, making you unsafe under doorways and keeping smelling air freshener fresh, I saw you and the two drivers who honked at you and gave you the wave and the thumbs up sign.  I wish I could have seen how you'd strapped it to your backpack, but thank you for not making any excuses about the Christmas spirit.
