That looks like fun. How many miles do you think you've toured with your daughter?

I always loved the mountains. I lived at the foothills of the San Gorgonio/San Jacinto Mnts in California.

My wife and I were sitting on the deck with a boittle of wine, and I said, "I love you."
She asked, "Is that you or the wine talking?"
I replied, "It's me.............. talking to the wine."

She didn't think it was funny

Why not, did she not hear the punchline? You should try it again, only this time louder.

Yes Austin … both we are always happy to be together … we bicycled 195 kilometers (60 + 55 + 80) … I can say, I am in terrible sport form … or sport shape … the first day I was almost killed bicycling up in the mountain, the third day I felt a little better … Each next spring I return my sport form harder and herder … it is deplorable …

Meanwhile … I can not fill very well difference between “shape” and “form” … it seems the second one can be used as a verb too … in BG we use only one word for both them …
I think I can say “I form a sand pyramid” … can I say “I shape a sand pyramid”?

Please, give me 2-3 examples ...

My native place is a mountain one … so I love the fields …. Especially green and yellow wheat and flowering sunflowers …. Needless to say, much easier to bicycle there …

Alex … my experience has taught me that 70% of women have not any sense of humor (maybe other 30% are not exactly women never mind they are in skirts) … so I am always very very careful joking with them … It seems they love humor only directed to the other women … I would add, you have a natural woman by your side …

We would say "I'm building a sand pyramid", or "I'm making a sand pyramid", although both of your phrases would not be incorrect.

Shape has 23 accepted uses and definitions. Form has 44.

Syntax is what makes English difficult, and you just pointed out a clear example of it.
