…now you must lie in it.
According to wordreference this is the best translation of a typical Italian saying that states what follows
“Hai voluto la bicicletta, ora pedala”
[You wanted the bike, now pedal/ride it].
This saying came up to my mind quite often in the last 2 days because I have finally found the time to set back to work the swing on my balcony.
Setting it back to work meant to clean it after 5 months of zero activity… I live quite close to a street where most of the day there is a lot of traffic… I let you imagine the pitiful swing conditions…
Today it meant to check all the bolt and screws of the swing and tighten them when necessary…
And while using the tools you can see above I have been thinking about those men that, in similar situations, look at the women with a sly smile and say “You wanted Gender Equality… now enjoy it”.
It’s ALL fine, the swing is back to work and from today to the end of October I’m sure that I will “ride my bike” quite often
