Sitting in the park this weekend, idly watching the nothing in front of me, a woman rode her bike to a shaded spot near me and stopped. She then proceeded to sytematically make her bike explode… First the front wheel came off, then the back. Then inexplicably the seat, handlebars, kick-stand, hubs, and chain found themselves in various states of disrepair. After that, there were some assorted hysterics, a lot of bike shaking, and then dramatic falls into the grass a la Scarlet O’Hara, complete with woe-is-me exclamations and frustrated, maniacal laughter.
Recall, though, that she rode into the park. In the words of the great Arsenio – Things that make you go “hmmmm”.
