this is michael’s bike
michael’s bike is a special bike. it’s not special because it’s a super-dee-duper top of the line bike (it’s not), and it’s not special because it’s an awesome color (it is an awesome color, but that’s not why it’s so special) and it’s not special because of any amazing promises that were made in the advertising of the bike (we saw no advertising). it’s special because it’s different.
and it requires a different bike riding skill set to get it to go. it didn’t come this way. the pedal came off and before we could find the tool we needed to fix it our house help’s husband had it all taken care of.
