  • After years of predictability, she's branching out into riskier territory.
    No more mundane, everyday routines.

    Now, there will be a scooter!

    Armed with her scooter, she'll scour the neighborhood during the day.
    Every street and cul-de-sac will be expertly maneuvered.
    Concealed behind her helmet, she feels like a vigilante.
    Her escapades are imagined missions, where she's 'keeping the streets clean.'
    Neighbors will stop in their tracks, seduced by the mysterious red scooter.
    Their stares will add to her artificial sense of entitlement.

    "They don't know it, but I'm doing them a favor," she'll think.
