Last week I was riding my cousin's bike to my calling when I looked down to see that the once faint crack in the frame had grown considerably. I told myself that I should probably check that out once I got home. After I finished with my appointments I headed home and humored the idea of the bike falling apart as I rode it.
Then it fall apart.
The bike collapsed on itself. I skillfully pulled off a sweet roll which kept (in order of importance) my clothes and body unscathed. My friend Courtney was driving by just as it happened and after she flipped around she rolled down her window and we shared the moment of astonishment at what just went down. I folded the bike in half and she drove me home.
