Filed under: Hey!
Big bummer. Ever since Sunday, my bicycle lock has been acting a little funky. It’s been kinda hard to turn the key in it. I did drop it when I was unlocking it, but that shouldn’t break the thing, should it?
Anyway, tonight I was unlocking it to chain my bike to a pole on the street outside my place, and the damn thing broke! I did use some force to turn it, but it was a fat ass key, and I didn’t think it would break like it was made out of friggin play-dough.
This is a major hassle. Now I have to worry about the bike’s safety tonight and tomorrow at school, and I have to hope I find a locksmith who can fish the broken part out. (I have replacement keys). If not, we have to cut the thing off, I guess (it’s chained to my bicycle basket), and I’ll have to buy a new one.
Sucks all around. I didn’t want to schlep the bike inside my apartment, so I hid it behind my apartment building. I hope it’s still there when I wake up tomorrow! I burned off a little steam (and hopefully a little more of that awesome Creme Brulee pink of Ben & Jerry’s I ate tonight) by riding it first for an hour in Hayarkon Park.
Now, I’m up way too late (nevermind the time stamp on wordpress; it’s 1:16 a.m. here), and didnt’ watch “24” or do my Hebrew homework yet. 😦
