The Butterfly Flew Away
Well, its gone. My beloved Butterfly Battle has been kidnapped. Today, for the first time ever, I forget to take the key out of the lock when I leave to get my train and that one mistake cost me my precious.
For one reason or another, I am not overly bothered by this. Perhaps, its the fact that the breaks are getting worn out, the tires need replacing, and the light on it is busted. All of those repairs would have come to the cost I paid for the bike itself. Then there is the fact that I only paid $50 for the bike and I have only done $22 worth of maintnance to it. I bought that bike because I knew the chance of it getting ripped off was pretty good and I was not going to get an expensive bike stolen. All in all, $72 for six months worth of solid transportation isn't too bad.
I suppose I will need to get a new bike at some point but I think I am going to try to wait until I get back from Tokyo. I know that my used stuff shop always carries bikes so I am not too worried about not getting one for a reasonable price. I will miss the Butterfly Battle though. It was a good bike.
