Default Called out at work, race set for lunchtime. Link to PICS!

So yeah, we're having our yearly Halloween party at work and with all the competitive fun events going out someone starts with the racing. I'm faster yo, I'll take you down. It was all fun and games till my boy Ken Mack calls me out and says "You'll get Pwn3d!" I'm like is that soooooo, he's like "oh yeah". I'm like alright lets do this...lunch time! Next thing you know I get an email from him saying "bring your race gear!" I'm like ok, its ON!

As the lunch hour starts slowly creeping up I'm wondering what the outcome will be. Does the Guru still have what it takes? I'm I gonna get pwn3d and be the laughing stock at work? Will my massive failure be known throughout the company? All these questions running through my head. The time comes and for good measure I quickly down a Red Bull as I know this will surely give me wings. We line it up and I inch my wheel a tad bit forward trying to get an advantage off the line. The whistle is sounded and we're off. Right outta the gate I'm about 1 full length behind. I tuck in nicely as I've planned and invisioned in my mind all morning. Coming around the last corner I break outta the draft and give it my all, slowly I pull alongside and see the look of disappointment on my competitors face. He surely realizes his mistake in not downing the Red Bull I offered him as we were walking out to the parking lot. We're coming to the finish line and I cross about 2 lengths ahead.

That's right baby, back to work with the lovely feeling of victory!

How do you pronounce "pwn3d"? "pown-three-ed"?

hhhhhmmmmm... 2k worth of cents is... carry the seven, subtract the denominator, solve for X... $20!!!

$20 will get you a nice set of bearings, or about 10 red bulls.
