It finally happened...

I've been hoping, no, not even daring to hope...and it happened!

Yesterday, while commuting to work on my bike on a deserted stretch of road (I know that's hard to believe, "deserted," but this whole story is eerie,) I was abducted by aliens. Ya, 'strue!

They examined my bike (darn! I thought they were going to check me out) and chattered on and on in some strange language (for those of you who thought aliens were "telepathic")
and took my baby completely apart. I fell into a deep sleep (I was sort of bored by this part) until I awoke suddenly, finding myself lying on the grass next to my bike.

When I got to work, no one believed me about this incident.

Chalk up another "crazy bike commuter" story!

(On the way home, I noticed a really small guy on a bike exactly like mine, sort of wobbling along, giggling...)

I was gonna send you a link to a psychiatrist, but I thought I'd be nice and send you this instead.

I could use some of that "triple strength hair glue!" (Do you think aliens would want that, too?)

Obviously those Little Green Men were looking for the most efficient propulsion system in the galaxy.

The really scary thing is how do you know they didn't take your bike and replace it with an exact replica? It happened to Steven Wright, remember?
