Hey, “Absolute” Ping,
I’ve read a lot of your crap over the years, and I gotta say, I like most of the comments you make, but I’m writing because I’m curious. What kind of last name is Pingree anyway? Is that of Chinese decent? Because you don’t look Chinese.
Ping, you gotta help me man, I know we dont know each other, but i know you're just as crazy about dirtbikes and racing as much as i am; so hopefully, you'll be able to help. here's the problem: im a subscriber to quite a few magazines, Racer X ill, transworld, MXA, Dirtrider, and Dirt Bike, obviously my favorite one is RACER X. well a few months ago my father moved from san diego to Pennsylvania, and since it was in the middle part of the school year, i was unable to go. so what am i getting at? when my dad moved i had to send all my magazines over to my moms house. well long story short, my father came back so i sent all my magazines back over to his house, except for two [MXA and Dirtbike]. well my mom found out that i wasnt doing very well in school, a few Ds. so when she found out, she called me and told me that she wasnt going to give me MY magazines until i got Cs or higher. and that wouldnt be a big deal except our finals are this week. what the hell is that? sorry for the language, but that's total BS man. and no matter how hard i try, she wont give them back to me. so i dont know, may be, just may be you could give her some excuses to give them back to me. trust me, i've tried all i know. so please, OHHH PLEASE can you give her a call or something.
oh and not to make you feel any worse, but im sorry to here about your injuries and the championship, or should i say lack there of? please read my message! and give me some advice or something...
I can’t believe I told you that.
P.s. I am very proud of you spelling Pennsylvania correctly. Maybe you really do have a C in you.
I'm curious. Is the overly acidic pH of your responses due to getting your short butt kicked regularly as a youngster, bad attitude from your wife making you change too many diapers, having to live in the People's Republic of California, or what?? Irregardless, keep up the good work!
