Ohh, what a problem!

My birthday is coming up next week. My inlaws always send us a birthday present inthe form of a check. I have such a problem. I cannot decide if I want the bendable bright light or a bicycle!

Here are the pros and cons...

Bendable bright light
It's waaay smaller than the huge hunky Ott light I have now

The amount of heat it gives off has to be smaller than the huge hunky Ott light

The huge hunky and might I add expensive Ott light is made with plastic knobs and screws that don't have heads. The knob is stripped and the screw is not tightenable. The riffin raffin thing will not stay put. I put it in place and it wings out in another direction. Sometimes, I have to lean it on my forehead as I sew in order to get the light in the right place.

I already have a perfectly usable light in the huge hunky Ott light. A bit inconvenient but usable and not propped on my forehead most of the time!

Mrs. S. got a bike and I'd have someone to bike with

The gym is less than 2 miles from here. I would bike there

I need to exercise. If I get any fatter, I'll bust!

Yeah right! The thrill will last 10 mins.

I have to store it.

Mrs. S's thrill will last 10 mins.

I'll complain about the heat and drive the gas guzzling car the 2 miles to the gym

Whatcha think?????????Bike or light! AHH!

Get the light and take a leisurely walk to the gym twice a week.

I've got a bike if you wanna borrow it.

I second what Vicki said, walk to the gym.

Ummmm. From your Pros and Cons I would say you pretty well have your mind made up. Get the light. You will get more enjoyment out of it.
I also agree with vicky walking is really nice and you won't have to worry so much about cars. (Can you tell I live on windy, hilly back roads and am totally scared when I have to pass a bike when there is no shoulder or bike path?)

The bike. Biking with a friend can be really relaxing. You don't HAVE to bike to the gym, you can just hop on and go through the neighborhood.

Morah, I have the light and I love it. Makes light night sewing alot easier. I also have a bike and I don't use it, most of the time the tires need air.

Get the light! Walk to the gym. Oh, btw - Happy Birthday!

Use the bike while you still can - then when you are too crotchedy to bicycle any more, sell it and buy the light.

BTW - a very Happy Birthday!!!

Happy, happy birthday! I vote for the light and a walk instead of the gym. :)

This sounds like a dilemma that I would have. For me, it would come down to what I should do rather than what I want to do. I'd get the light.

If where you live is anything like where I live, if you get the bike you will be run over! Walking is safer - stay on the sidewalk. And, bracing a light against your head because the darned thing won't stay in place? You don't need the irritation. Get the new light. Your commenters are right; if you walk to the gym and back, you won't actually have to go IN the gym. A four mile walk is great exercise!
