090911 – Fix It

Today’s Transport –

Single-occupant: 14.7

For some reason it seemed as if the weather guessers were going to be correct today. I drove and I don’t regret it.

--

A couple days ago I heard crying in my front yard. I was pretty sure I knew who it was. I was equally sure she’d go two doors down to her home for the necessary attention. She’d likely fallen off her bike.

A few minutes later I heard crying again. There she was in our driveway. I remained confused, why hadn’t she gone home. I began quizzing her…

The chain on her bike had fallen off.

She didn’t know if she was hurt - maybe a little on her leg.

When her chain fell off, she fell off.

She didn’t know if she was bleeding - maybe a little on her leg.

I was just about exasperated when it occurred to me…

She’s here crying so that I’ll come out and fix her bike.

So I fixed her bike.

She stopped crying.

Priorities.

Haha, that is priceless. I got caught in the rain some on the way into work today myself. I'm wising up a little for the walk home and borrowing an umbrella from work.
