Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! I crack me up!
I came home and woke up Larry to assemble the bike. Ever the dutiful husband, he complied while I went out to take care of some other things. When I returned, he was crawling around the den floor searching for a missing nut. The bike was completely assembled except for the seat, and I waxed ecstatic over the pink pedals, agog with anticipation of Susie coming downstairs in the morning and discovering her BRAND NEW BIKE in the middle of the living room. It would be the best present ever!
"Can you help me look for this thing?" asked Larry.
"Sure! Maybe it fell in the box! Let's see...hmmm....oh, wait....wait a second...whoa..."
"Uh, there are no brakes."
"It says right here - no brakes. Why would someone make a bike without brakes? Do they hate little kids?"
I wonder how early Target opens in the morning?
