All Things Animal
Animal, the Muppet, holds a certain significance for me as well, see post below. When I was about 18 years old, two friends of mine gave me an Animal rubber figure as a joke for my birthday. If memory serves me correctly, it was partly due to my partying ways at the time and my love for mountain biking. And ever since then, some 20 years later (!?!), Animal has graced the handle bars of every bike I have owned. I consider him my good luck talisman, and although I have had some major crashes on my bike (past and present), I have been able to walk away from all of them. Call it what you want, but I'd feel naked without Animal along for the ride.
